SITAONAIR’s contractual commitments toward its customers span multiple years and cover a large variety of different activities.
These activities typically fall into three major program phases :
The preparation phase which occurs before the first aircraft deployment and which covers topics like contract finalization, the acquisition of the various regulatory authorizations, system and product customization, trainings.
The deployment and activation phase which occurs when the Customer’s aircraft are being delivered or embodied with systems supporting SITAONAIR’s services and when services are being activated.
This phase covers activities around logistics, provisioning, testing, marketing communication and specific in-service support.
