Airport connectivity simplified
The widespread availability of new technologies and growing adoption of cloud-based applications have increased airlines’ and other aviation tenants’ expectation of reliable and secure connectivity, both at the airport and to their back office systems off the airport.
The long lead-times and lack of flexibility in getting connectivity from local telecom providers can discourage airlines from trialing new routes or running seasonal operations. In addition, off-airport connectivity at airports can be expensive, inhibiting airlines from investing in data hungry applications that could improve passenger satisfaction.
SITA’s AirportHub™ is an airport-wide shared connectivity platform offering reliable, flexible and cost-effective communication services to airlines, ground handlers, and maintenance companies based at the airport. It simplifies how aviation companies connect to their central systems and applications from their airport destinations.Today AirportHub™ is used by 300+ customers with over 3,500 connections in operation. Join the AirportHub™ program and become another enabler in this growing community of next-generation connected airports.
AirportHub™ is an end-to-end solution installed and fully managed by SITA on behalf of the airport tenants with no cost to the airport operator.
AirportHub™ simplifies life for the airport by reducing the complexity of the IT infrastructure, not least through cutting the tangle of dedicated WAN and LAN cabling throughout the airport for each tenant.
A shared connectivity platform, such as AirportHub®, can facilitate greater cooperation by giving airports the opportunity to deploy their own shared services, such as CUPPS and CUSS kiosks, to the same airline community, in a faster and more cost-effective manner.
AirportHub™ offers agile connectivity at your destination airports, improving your operations and customer satisfaction.
