Gulf Air expects to see a cost savings of up to 22 percent in IP-related services at its airport offices, as it will take advantage of SITA’s embedded service net architecture that allows the carrier’s air transport partners to have access to its private network.
“Gulf Air recognizes the importance of technology as a key element of its business and has been proactively upgrading its technical capabilities to serve its customers faster, easier and more efficiently. The new technology optimization not only improves efficiencies across our business but also saves our communications costs significantly,” said Samer Majali, CEO of Gulf Air.
