SITA, air transport communications and IT solutions, is acquiring Canada-based MEXIA Interactive, global provider of curb-to-gate passenger analytics for the air travel industry.

SITA currently operates in multiple airports innovating passenger flow solutions, with the acquisition of MEXIA adding to those operations by monitoring passenger traffic to predict and amend issues.

Barbara Dalibard, CEO of SITA, says, “Airports increasingly need comprehensive and sophisticated technology solutions that help them meet the continued growth in passenger numbers while improving the overall airport experience. This is a market where SITA is strongly focused and where we can deliver real value. With the acquisition of MEXIA, we will strengthen our airport portfolio, providing our customers with automated predictive analytics and detailed passenger flow management throughout the airport.”

SITA will continue to provide global support for all MEXIA’s existing and future customers.
