Flight status service leads to new standards

In June SITA completed the trial of a new flight status service operated in collaboration with Geneva International Airport. The service received very positive feedback from users.

As part of the pilot operation, a cross-sector task force has developed a policy to guide the registration and use of domain names needed to operate such services. This policy will ensure that future similar services can be operated by multiple providers yet retain the consistency so much needed by the traveling public. A full .pdf document is published on the .aero website here.

Airlines, airports and IT providers are invited to review the policy and consider the introduction of a flight status service based on its proposed parameters. For more information, see here or contact aero.enquiries@sita.aero.
