The ‘SITA 70th Anniversary and Awards Dinner’ also saw the presentation of awards to eight members celebrating 70th, 60th and 50th anniversary milestones with SITA.
This year SITA Membership Anniversary Awards were presented to eight airlines who joined SITA prior to 1969. They have all played a significant role in the development and evolution of air transport both in their own regions and globally.
Three airlines have reached 50 years as SITA Members, and another three 60 years. Celebrating 70 years as SITA members are the two airlines who have been present from the outset: Air France and KLM. See table.
