Finnair Selects SITA for Global Remote Office Management

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Tuesday, 8 February 2011

Finnair has selected SITA to provide remote office management at 42 outstations across Europe, Asia and North America.

The air transport communications specialist will provide this managed service as Finnair expands its network to fulfil its Vision 2020 to be the top choice for travellers to Europe, Asia and North America.

SITA Remote Office Integrated Service delivers Finnair full telecommunications and desktop services including WAN, LAN, voice services, network optimization, leased lines, complete service management and delivery. Finnair now has full visibility of the cost for remote office communications in any region based on a price per office.

 Finnair continuously strives for efficiencies and when we considered our options for our global communications and remote office management we found that by using SITAs managed services we could work with one supplier worldwide. Bringing the individual elements of communications, desktop management and network optimization together has enabled us to reduce our overall costs by more than 20%, said Kari Hnninen, Finnair Director, ICT Architectures. But the cost savings, though very welcome, are not the only one reason why we chose SITA. The benefit of having a strategic partner that manages all these services coherently is of huge value and the clarity in costs is vital as we plan our future expansion.

The commercial and operational management by SITA of Finnairs 42 remote offices, and its headquarters in Helsinki, began in January. SITA will also begin monthly and quarterly analyses of the total cost of ownership of Finnairs voice costs providing the airline with valuable management information to consider future transformation and consolidation of these services.

Finnair carried more than six million passengers in 2010 and its global route network includes over 50 international destinations, and another 700 through its cooperation with oneworld alliance partners.
