The 2013 edition of the Confederation Cup that will take place in Brazil from June 15 to June 30. This major sport event is organized by FIFA, the international governing body of football, among the 8 national teams that won the tournament organized by the football confederation they belong to or that have gained special merits. The 2013 edition will see the following Nations competing: Brazil, Spain, Japan, Mexico, Uruguay, Tahiti, Italy, Nigeria. Almost 600,000 tickets have already been sold for this amazing competition. A consequently huge number of visitors and tourists are expected to invade Brazil to watch the games or even only attracted by the beauty of the country. A majority of these will use airplanes to enter Brazil, and therefore the air traffic load will dramatically increase during June.
In the past years, SITTI has been providing Voice Communication Systems (VCS) to all major Brazilian air traffic control centers (Brasilia, Manaus, Curitiba, Recife). These helped to enforce the national air transportation infrastructure through modern and state-of the-art technology systems. SITTI will further support the national Brazilian ANSP in the coming weeks and will be actively contributing to the success of the Confederation Cup tournament by constantly providing their own personnel at the air traffic control centers (thanks to a 365/24 maintenance contract), so as to make skies even more safe and enjoyable.
