Products/Services Engaged

Saudi Air Navigation Services (SANS) is responsible for providing air navigation services in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, where it plays an important and vital role in the security and safety of airspace and aircraft movement within Saudi airspace.

SANS’ vision is to give regional ANSP leadership by providing world class services, focused on air traffic management, aeronautical information management, search and rescue, and systems and maintenance engineering.

In 2018, SITA FOR AIRCRAFT was formally selected by SANS to elevate the Kingdom’s air traffic management capabilities, through to 2025.

Under the agreement, SITA FOR AIRCRAFT is to deliver country-wide, unrivalled, state-of-the-art VHF and Digital Automatic Terminal Information Service (D-ATIS) solutions for SANS, to benefit all airlines flying in Saudi Arabia.

Under the agreement, SITA FOR AIRCRAFT will establish additional VHF stations providing coverage in new locations, including the Rub' al Khali (Empty Quarter) desert. It will also further optimize datalink coverage and services by upgrading both existing stations and SITA FOR AIRCRAFT’s AIRCOMcats D-ATIS gateway server, to better serve airports and airspace users.

The project will specifically aim to ensure coverage in the southeast and northwest of Saudi Arabia for en route traffic, increasing the availability of VHF/VDL networks at all main airports in the Kingdom and beyond.

“Safety is one of the foremost and primary factors at the heart of our operations, and in order to ensure that we operate at the highest safety standards we always strive to implement the best global safety practices and latest technologies. SANS selects various industry leaders – in this case SITA FOR AIRCRAFT, who will be providing enhanced datalink communications to support increasing air traffic in Saudi skies and enhance communications between air traffic controllers and pilots. We look forward to seeing this project develop and cementing our place as a regional ANSP leader.” – SANS CEO, Ryyan Tarabzoni
