Airport Management

Integrated operations management system


Operating an airport demands the timely allocation of workforces and assets and the ability to make the right decisions at the right time to keep things moving.  SITA Airport Management is a suite of integrated software applications that support and enhance airport operations from landside to airside, from landing to take off.

What makes Airport Management special is its ability to take control of your airport operations from a central point. From service level agreements (SLAs) to passenger communications, from generating billing charges to real-time management of fixed and mobile resources, SITA’s Airport Management gives you the freedom to plan your operations the way you want.

Airport Management enables airport operators to be proactive and simplifies their day-to-day tasks. It provides them with an effective way to share information with their stakeholders enabling common situational awareness and supporting processes for working together. SITA Airport Management encompasses:

  • Core airport operational database (AirportCentral)
  • Scheduling, capacity planning and resource management (AirportResource Manager)
  • Dynamic, flight information display system (AirportVision)
  • Audio and visual public address system (AirportVoice)

Whether you operate multiple airports, or one, SITA’s Airport Management gives you greater control of your operations, simplifying complexity and facilitating collaboration. Airport Management gives you the flexibility to adapt to the demands of the day and drives improved business results and profitability.

Clear view is vital

With close to 150 airports in 31 countries, it is vital that we have a clear view of our operations at all times as well as the ability to respond to changes as they happen….  The system from SITA supports us by providing all the information we need to decide on how best to deploy our resources while enabling our operations teams to respond proactively to changes in our operating environment.

  • Continuously  improve business results
    Airport Management helps you optimize performance and revenues with real-time dashboards, targeted advertising, accurate billing, definitions of key performance indicators (KPIs) and predictive analytics based on ‘what if’ billing scenarios.
  • Enable systems integration and collaboration
