Dubai, UAE : Monday, October 30, 2017

National Aviation Services (NAS), the fastest growing aviation services provider in the emerging markets was recognized as the winner of the prestigious ‘Aviation Deployment of the Year’ Award at Computer News Middle East’s (CNME) ICT Achievement Awards 2017.

CNME's ICT Achievement Awards recognize individuals and organizations that have delivered ground-breaking business value through the innovative application of technology. The eighth annual ICT Achievement Awards was dedicated to honouring participants in several categories; including Technology Deployment, Innovation, and Strategy. Nominated parties included prominent enterprises from various sectors including airlines, banks, universities, hospitals, and telecommunication companies.

NAS's award winning deployment involved the roll-out of advanced systems tailored to enhance airport lounge operations across its network. This included more than 30 airport lounges across the Middle East and Africa. The integrated system automated otherwise manual lounge administration processes resulting in financial savings, increased throughput, enhanced customer experience, and improved compliance. The new system helped reduce the average effort required for lounge check-in by more than 90% and helped lounge agents dedicate their time to ensuring the comfort of guests at the lounge.

Rami Al-Haddad, IT Director, NAS Group, said “We are honored to be recognized with an award for our efforts in enhancing customer experience and quality of service. NAS is committed to investing in innovative technologies, especially in the areas of enriching passengers’ experience and improving airlines On-Time-Performance.
