Scoot, Singapore Airlines’ low cost carrier, has
renewed its long-term communication network services agreement with SITA as
the airline continues to expand to new locations worldwide.
SITA AirportHub is simplifying the way
Scoot connects its central IT systems to the airports in its
rapidly-growing route network.
Chin, Vice President, IT, Scoot, said, “Scoot currently has an
extensive network of 66 destinations across 18 countries and
territories, and plans for aggressive growth are in place. It is
vital that our IT infrastructure is connected among our partners
and efficient enough to support our expansion. SITA is a reliable
partner in efficiently getting airports connected. With SITA’s
global footprint, speed and flexibility, we can focus on expansion
and adding new routes to our network.”
AirportHub removes the complexity of dealing
with local telecom providers and adds flexibility and agility to
route management. The system is currently operational at more than 440 airports
and provides 7,000 customer connections around the world.
SITA’s network services will connect Scoot destinations worldwide to its
reservation system, Departure Control Services and disaster recovery site.
Sumesh Patel, SITA President, Asia
Pacific, said, “These are exciting times at Scoot as it rapidly
grows its business. Expansion can bring challenges but SITA is
delivering sophisticated communication network services to
alleviate some of those. Our continued partnership with Scoot
ensures that the airline remains agile. We are supporting the
Scoot team as it brings its great passenger experience to airports
around the world.”
