Type X Distribution Service

Reliable and secure XML data exchange

Overview

The electronic exchange of messages underpins every operational aspect of the air transport industry (ATI).

Type B has served the industry well and will remain the predominant communication mechanism for data exchange for many years. However, extensible markup language (XML) data exchange is now starting to gain traction and broad industry adoption is expected in the next three to five years.

SITA’s Type X Distribution Service provides reliable and secure XML data exchange across the ATI while ensuring backward compatibility with Type B to facilitate XML adoption.
