The technology enables a passenger to securely create a digital credential held on their mobile wallet
SITA has announced the launch of SITA eVisa and SITA Electronic Travel Authorization to meet the rapidly growing demand from governments for digital visa systems to stimulate national economies after COVID-19, strengthen security and improve the travel experience.
As part of the transformation of Indonesia’s airports into world-class facilities, PT. Angkasa Pura 1 (Persero), which operates 13 airports across Eastern Indonesia, today announced the rollout of SITA’s world-class common-use passenger technology.
Airline baggage handling improved last year with the rate of mishandled bags dropping 1.78 percent, according to the ninth annual SITA Baggage Report. In 2012, 8.83 bags per thousand passengers were mishandled, down from 8.99 in 2011. The air transport industry achieved this improvement despite a 4.5 percent rise in passenger numbers to 2.95 billion; higher passenger volumes inevitably increase pressure on airport baggage operations.
In a move to ensure optimum fares for its 20 million passengers, Garuda Indonesia has switched to SITA’s innovative fare pricing software, Airfare Insight. The system monitors competitor fare activity in an increasingly complex market that can have 20 million fare changes in a single week. It enables Garuda to make fully-informed fare changes in real time ensuring the airline continually offers competitive fares to customers.
