SITA has been named IT Company of the Year for the second time in three years at the 2015 Air Transport News (ATN) Awards, held in Geneva on March 21. Dave Bakker, president for SITA Europe, accepted the award on behalf of SITA CEO Francesco Violante.
Bakker said, “SITA is honored to receive this award bestowed on us from our peers. We work with nearly every airline and airport in the world, collaborating to create community value, while exploring new technology that will help shape the future of the industry.
“SITA is 100% owned by the air transport industry, so we make strategic investments, develop new solutions and explore innovations for the benefit of the entire community. This award is a true endorsement of our direction and our strategic areas of focus and is thanks to our employees and partners, who are always looking for new ways to add more value.”
The website’s readers selected all award winners based on two months of online voting. A jury of industry leaders later validated the results. ATN has a subscription base of more than 42,000.
