SITA is helping the General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA) to overhaul airport IT and communication systems at 26 airports in Saudi Arabia.
SITA will implement the AirportConnect Open platform that will allow airlines to use common facilities while delivering a self-service experience from check-in to boarding. It also enables the implementation of solutions such as biometric single-token travel and common-use payment systems. The platform is supported by the introduction of new Wide Area Network and Local Area Network connectivity across all airports.
SITA will also provide GACA with a baggage management system in line with industry standards, enabling Saudi airports to meet baggage-tracking requirements in IATA Resolution 753.
