Our membership base includes airlines, airports, airport-based organizations, and air traffic management, with 95% of all international destinations and over 13,500 industry sites connected by SITA‘s network.
Through our cooperative structure, we provide high-speed network communications to and between members on a not-for-profit basis and drive the IT agenda across the air transport industry, researching and investing in the latest technology innovations.
SITA works closely with leading global industry associations, including The International Air Transport Association (IATA), Airport Council International (ACI), and locally with regional industry associations to ensure we are fully aligned to the current and future needs of our industry.
SITA members guide our direction and strategy through the SITA Council, which has reserved seats for both airport and ICT provider representatives.
Making sure members’ views are represented is what makes SITA unique. By representing members and their requirements, we remain at the heart of the air transport community.
