About Us

Our History

Our company was born in 2006 when the two founding partners (with more than 17 years of experience in the industry) agreed on the need to have specialized services in the field of booking and distribution systems.

Indeed, until today there are very few companies with the experience and technical capacity to understand and propose efficient solutions in business processes around these traditional systems. These systems exist and have been developed for more than 4 decades provided by the same companies (Amadeus, Saber, SITA, etc).

Advitair (Advanced IT Services for Air Transport Industry) has concentrated its services on Airlines, but we have also developed products and projects for other clients, who are major players in the travel industry: Railway Operators, Tour Operators and Travel Agencies.

 

The added value to our customers comes from 3 factors:

1) The experience of our team.

2) The combination of efficient processes with unique systems (owners).

3) Our orientation to meet the client's objectives.

 

Currently the Advitair team has 15 people, who have an average experience of 8 years in different business processes in the world of reserves and distribution. Additionally, we have an experienced software development team to create and maintain the company's exclusive systems.

So far we have served more than 15 clients-companies in the South America region, but we continue to grow and develop products and services to project ourselves to other regions of the world.
