Geneva Airport sees millions of passengers in and out of their hub every year. A busy, multifaceted little city, the airport is required to run smoothly and efficiently.
Right next door to them is SITA, (Société Internationale de Télécommunications Aéronautiques). Founded in the 1940s, SITA is responsible for inventing and implementing technologies that keep airports like Geneva in working order.

1E partner SITA provides IT and telecommunication services to the air travel industry and they are aware of the necessity to improve the process of software and security updates.
We might not be able to forecast the future in detail, but we can have an impact in shaping the future of IT and air travel to be better and faster.
