new areas to the benefit of the air transport community. We responded to the

of volume and looking for new ways to help our customers. SITA has come out of this
challenging period in better business and financial shape and is now ready to lift
its performance to the next level.”

business targets by 30%. This has helped create a solid foundation for integration
into a single SITA organization planned to start this July.”

stronger position in the market place, a single integrated approach to the customer
and a simple and cost effective governance, management and organization structure,
