Airport Management | SITA



Increasing passenger growth coupled with capacity constraints means that operating an airport demands insight and collaboration for the timely allocation of workforces and assets as well as the ability to make the right decisions at the right time to keep things moving.

SITA Airport Management is a suite of integrated software applications designed to support and enhance airport operations from landside to airside, from landing to take off. With SITA Airport Management solution, you have access to real-time data to better anticipate, plan and control your operations, assigning assets and resources more effectively.

SITA Airport Management gives you control of all of your operations from a central point. From service level agreements (SLAs) to passenger communications, from generating billing charges to real-time management of fixed and mobile resources, including staff.

Our AODB underpins A-CDM ensuring all key stakeholders have access to the data and shared KPIs they need to efficiently manage their daily operations.

SITA Airport Management covers all your needs

  • AirportCentral - central repository of all flight data (AODB), aeronautical billing calculations, management of departure sequences and use of the runway, runway and apron management
