SITA is to roll out faster, new-generation connectivity across Kenya Airways' global network.

 

Through SITA Connect, the airline will have access to high-speed, secure connectivity, linking employees and sales offices around the world to Kenya Airways’ central systems and applications to manage everything from reservations, check-in and boarding.

Mbuvi Ngunze, Group MD and CEO of Kenya Airways said: “As we seek to position Kenya Airways for the future, we needed a single communications partner that could take care of all our connectivity requirements no matter where we operate. SITA, with its truly global footprint and experience, provided us with a world-class solution supported by a local presence in each destination, connecting even the furthest outstation to our hub in Nairobi.” 

Hani El-Assaad, SITA President, Middle East, India and Africa said: “Today connectivity on demand is the lifeblood of any airline, ensuring the smooth and rapid exchange of information needed to support effective operations no matter where in the world an airline operates, the size of their operation or their business model. We have used our global experience and presence to provide Kenya Airways with the latest communication solution that is able to cater to their own specific requirements.”
