SITAONAIR launched to create unique connected aircraft solutions

Smiling pilot in cockpit with headset onGENEVA - 12 January 2015 – SITA and OnAir have formed SITAONAIR to help airlines realize the full potential of the connected aircraft. Today’s aircraft generate so much data in flight that airlines have to look for ways to make the best operational use of the connected aircraft. SITAONAIR plans to set the benchmark for true nose-to-tail connected aircraft solutions, regardless of fleet size, route structure or aircraft type.

SITAONAIR brings together the companies’ industry leadership in a range of areas of expertise: ground and inflight connectivity, cockpit data services and air traffic management solutions, aircraft communications and infrastructure solutions, as well as application development for both passengers and crew. The core of the new business organization is SITA’s proven knowledge of airline communications and IT, and OnAir’s expertise in supplying in-flight connectivity.

“The connected aircraft will transform both the passenger and crew experience while improving airlines’ operational efficiency,” said Francesco Violante, CEO of SITA. “It’s a win-win for passengers and airlines, connecting people throughout their whole journey, increasing revenue by encouraging more people to fly, and reducing costs by improving turnaround times and on-time performance. We are using the respective strengths of SITAONAIR to create powerful solutions for the entire airline industry.”“The connected aircraft is nothing unless it is fully integrated into an airline’s IT infrastructure, which is a highly complicated undertaking,” added Mr. Violante. “SITA has supplied IT solutions to airlines for over 65 years, in particular integrating new technologies into complex IT systems.”SITAONAIR is already a leading supplier in the connected aircraft market with nearly 400 airline customers operating over 14,000 aircraft. SITAONAIR has 265 staff worldwide and is headed by Ian Dawkins, CEO of OnAir since 2010.

“The connected aircraft is probably the most important development in aviation IT in a generation,” said Mr. Dawkins. “We are the only supplier with the range of expertise to make it a viable reality.”

SITAONAIR was launched on 1 January 2015 as part of the SITA Group.

Further details about SITAONAIR, including continued investments in people and growth, will be announced in the second quarter of 2015.
