Within the categories of ‘Innovation’ and ‘Stepping up for the customer’, SITA teams nominated projects for awards that deliver high value and impact.
The SITA Council agreed to the launch in December 2017 of the ‘SITA Council Awards’ with the aim of recognizing the work of SITA employees in supporting innovation and better meeting member and customer needs.
Launched in May 2018 and after an overwhelming response from SITA teams, submissions for the 2018 SITA Council Awards closed with over 50 entries.
Within the categories of ‘Innovation’ and ‘Stepping up for the customer’, SITA teams nominated projects for awards that deliver high value and impact, as well as excellent service, to SITA members, customers and the air transport community at large.
Having reviewed the submissions, SITA’s Executive Team shortlisted 16 for evaluation by the Council Award Panel. The role of the Panel was to then review and bring forward their top three in each category. The panel comprises: Kelly Cunningham (United Airlines), Susan Doniz (Qantas Airways) and Eash Sundaram (JetBlue Airways).
Watch this space! Recommendations are with the SITA Council for endorsement at the December Council meeting. The winners will be decided and announced in January 2019. This will include a formal ceremony at each of SITA's Geography Kick-off events.
