We have seen a number of member anniversaries. Each year, we celebrate those member anniversaries that are milestones. During 2016, we’ll be presenting over 50 awards to members.
In particular, we have four members marking 60 years of SITA members – Air Serbia, Middle East Airlines, Pakistan International Airlines and Qantas.

Receiving a membership anniversary award for 25 years in 2015 was EUROCONTROL, the European Organization for the Safety of Air Navigation. The award was presented to Director General, Frank Brenner.
In acknowledging the award, Brenner commented, “I am happy that EUROCONTROL could, over the last 25 years, successfully contribute to the work done by SITA in developing and implementing high-end IT solutions at a global level. With its work, SITA is contributing to the continuously ongoing technical evolution that helps the European aviation industry to operate smoothly and efficiently.”
