Air Transat Turns to SITA to Enable Fast Route Development

Air Transat, one of Canadas leading holiday travel airlines, has turned to SITA to support its route development in airports across the Caribbean, South and Central America.

Over the next three years, SITA will provide Air Transat with network connectivity in Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Guadeloupe, Haiti, Honduras, Martinique, Mexico and Panama.

Many smaller and low-cost airports do not have common-use equipment and hardware has to be provided by the airline. However, it is not easy to transport computers in and out of countries quickly or have support staff available immediately to service the equipment; its also costly to store equipment in the off-season when not needed. SITA will provide end-user computing services to manage this challenge, allowing Air Transat to add new seasonal destinations more quickly and smoothly.

Martin Lachance, Director, IT Solutions, Air Transat, said, SITA has delivered a solution tailored exactly to our business needs. This is a combination of SITAs network connectivity with global presence and local support, simplified billing, and fast streamlined implementation across our ever-changing seasonal network. SITAs uniform global servicedriven by a comprehensive service level agreement with standardized equipment and processescontrols costs and simplifies billing, giving us the flexibility we demand in our business.

Randy Pizzi, SITA President, Americas, said, SITA is excited to partner with Air Transat to deliver services that support the flexibility this dynamic business requires. The combination of our end-user computing services and reliable network availability allows Air Transat to save time and control costs while ensuring high levels of service and site management.
