Saudis pick SITAONAIR as datalink partner

03 May 2019

Saudi Air Navigation Services (SANS) has officially selected SITAONAIR to deliver nationwide very high frequency (VHF) and digital ATIS (D-ATIS) communications solutions until 2025.

By setting up additional VHF stations for coverage of new areas, including the Empty Quarter, and upgrading datalink coverage and services, SITAONAIR will help SANS to ensure coverage of en route traffic flying over Saudi Arabia, while also increasing the availability of VHF/VHF datalink networks at all main airports in the country.

The agreement was announced on 1 May. It builds on a long-standing VHF datalink partnership between the two parties, dating back to December 2007.
