Saudi Arabian Airlines has selected Sita to support its strategic expansion plans, by introducing modern, world-class IT infrastructure across 200 of the airline’s offices located in 100 cities and airports in 60 countries.
The solution will support the airline’s global IT infrastructure, which connects all Saudia outstations with its headquarters and various data centres worldwide.
Sita, the IT provider to the air transport industry, will introduce its unique ATI Cloud solution, which will allow Saudia to manage and distribute its business applications, information and business services on-demand, anywhere in the world.
The agreement also includes infrastructure, IT support and round-the-clock service through a dedicated service centre.
Saudia’s incremental growth and global expansion has seen the airline open new offices in key cities and in turn, has developed new IT requirements to support the demand for the carrier’s continued growth in passenger numbers in the Kingdom and beyond.
Airlines are increasingly looking for specialised content and service providers to meet their requirements.
Sita, with its global presence and expertise, was identified as a trusted partner to implement a solution that would drive greater efficiency and productivity.
Director general of Saudi Arabian Airlines, Saleh bin Nasser Al-Jasser, commented: “As Saudia moves forward with expansion plans across the entire organization and operations, it is critical that we continue investing in leading-edge, modern technology.
“Saudia has a key role to play in the nation’s Vision 2030 and continues to grow both in the Kingdom and beyond.”
Saudi Arabian Airlines is the national carrier of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
