Oman Air has signed a five-year contract worth $4.6 million with aviation specialist SITA to install and maintain a hybrid network system. The national carrier of Oman is currently migrating a legacy system and claims that the new network will both enhance productivity and deliver cost savings across its route map.

Peter Hill, Oman Air CEO, said: “There are several advantages to choosing SITA as our single network provider. We will have improved network performance thanks to a bandwidth upgrade which also enables us to use additional applications. The cost savings will also be significant.”

Hani El Assaad, SITA Regional Vice-President, Middle East and Turkey said: “This project is a perfect illustration of how smartly deployed IT services can enable both savings and improved productivity for an airline in a time of economic difficulty. Oman Air will be well-placed to take advantage of the economic upturn when it happens.”
