The Business Information Technologies (BIT) Committee is the forum where members with airport-related information technology responsibilities can network, communicate, share data, conduct research and keep up-to-date with the latest technological developments. The committee examines new and emerging technologies for their applicability to airport systems, and reviews how existing systems can be improved to better serve the airport system and the needs of customers.

Committee focus areas include: airport information management systems, private and public communication services, Intranet and Internet computer networking, system design and application of new technology. Members prepare congressional testimony, respond to regulatory proposals and develop national and international policies for airport operators. The committee is represented on industry and governmental communications and IT taskforces.
