Société Internationale de Télécommunications Aéronautiques Key Developments

Garuda Indonesia Selects SITA to Support Transformation in New Five-Year Deal

Garuda Indonesia has selected air transport IT specialist, SITA, to fully manage its international network infrastructure, standardize IT operations including its domestic IT infrastructure, and facilitate quick migration to its new reservation system. The new five-year agreement will simplify Garuda’s information technology, while supporting its “Quantum Leap” transformation program as Indonesia prepares to welcome 100 million passengers by 2015. SITA’s unique network offering has a footprint in more than 220 countries and offers shared infrastructure at over 300 airports, including SITA’s community approach to operational messaging. Under the new agreement, SITA will extend its current role from managing Garuda’s international network to also managing its domestic network, including some domestic airports. It will also include handling domestic infrastructure vendors, providing end-user computing services and managing operational messaging. This, in turn, will simplify the airline’s administration and billing, provide substantial cost savings, and ensure all end users globally benefit from the same high level of reliability and performance.

SITA Announces Executive Changes

SITA announced that Paul Coby, the Chair of the Board, is stepping down after 11 years following criticisms of the organization by a number of leading airlines earlier June 2014. Bill Miller of United Airlines has been appointed to replace Coby as Chair of the SITA Board for a three-year-term. Coby will, however, stay on the board.

SITA Appoints David Chambers as Vice President of Sales in North America

SITA announced the appointment of David Chambers to its growing North American sales team. Chambers brings more than 20 years of IT and air transport industry experience to his new role as Vice President of Sales in North America. In this position, Chambers will lead business development and grow SITA's sales coverage throughout the region. Prior to joining SITA, Chambers spent 15 years collectively in the air transport industry with Sabre Airline Solutions and American Airlines. During his time in the industry he held many roles including positions with BigMachines, Unisys and IBM.
