SITA’s Departure Control Services at Beirut-Rafic Hariri International Airport

The smooth transition to SITA’s Departure Control Services at Beirut-Rafic Hariri International Airport has streamlined check-in, boarding and on-time departures for passengers.

Beirut-Rafic Hariri International Airport has streamlined check-in, boarding and on-time departures for passengers. Lebanese Air Transport Co (LAT), which manages departure control services for 15 airlines that use the airport, has switched to SITA’s Departure Control Services (DCS).

Under the five-year agreement, SITA is providing full network connectivity and local support at the airport. Additionally, LAT is one of the first ground handlers to benefit from SITA’s next generation weight and balance system, which is designed to ensure that aircraft are loaded and dispatched safely and effectively using the latest graphical user interfaces.

Ibrahim Chehab, General Manager, Lebanese Air Transport Co., said: “Beirut Airport is experiencing growth, and the need to update our systems was clear. SITA is the ideal partner for us because it provides sophisticated departure control services combined with network connectivity and onsite support. Already we are seeing an improvement in our passenger processing, with fully automated boarding and secure check-in services. Our airline customers are used to working with SITA at other airports around the world and enjoy the improvements we have made to the DCS in Beirut. We look forward to welcoming new airlines here.”
