SITA's Wi-Fi service provides more than 5,200 SAS employees working primarily in SAS flight operations secure access to the worlds largest Wi-Fi network through 57-million hotspots in 120 countries.

The service, available in more than 700 airports globally, has made it possible for crew members to receive flight and passenger information through the airlines crew tablet application while on the ground, wherever they are located around the globe.

Jeff Markstedt, Head of IT Communication at SAS, said, It is important that everybody within SAS can easily connect to the airlines systems and get the latest information needed in their day-to-day work. By using SITAs Wi-Fi service enables SAS to provide a secure and cost-effective connectivity to its employees around the globe.

Through Mobility Access, SITA makes it possible to update applications from any destination. Airline companies can now centrally manage their global connectivity, ensuring security and cost-effectiveness while the crew has the most up-to-date information for flight planning and providing a better passenger service.

Mobility Access ensures that SAS crew members always have Wi-Fi access that provides high-quality connectivity no matter where they are in the world.

An added benefit of SITAs Mobility Access is that by reducing the need for other roaming services, communication costs are kept low without having to compromise on quality connectivity.
