SITA has completed its acquisition of delair Air Traffic Systems, a private company based in Braunschweig, Germany, which provides airport collaborative decision making (A-CDM) solutions.
SITA believes the acquisition will further its position as a leader in airport management systems by offering additional functionalities such as departure sequencing, de-icing and performance management.
“The addition of delair’s depth of airport A-CDM expertise will provide SITA’s customers with an even stronger comprehensive airport management solution, resulting in greater control of their operations, simplifying complexity and improving profitability,” commented Francesco Violante, SITA’s CEO.
Dietmar Dippe, general manager of delair, added, “The technical capabilities we have built at delair over the past 18 years complement SITA’s global reach in the airport sector and we look forward to becoming part of the SITA success story.”
SITA will continue to develop delair's products and will provide support for all delair’s existing customers. Members of the delair staff will remain located in Braunschweig.
