The Business Information Technology (BIT) Committee is a community of aviation industry professionals committed to advancing a business-driven technology agenda for North American airports.  The committee achieves its mission by lobbying on airports’ behalf on important technological issues, by sponsoring initiatives to develop groundbreaking airport technology-based service models and by working with members and partners to establish an industry-wide airport technology agenda.

The Committee facilitates education and experience sharing events for its members and it collaborates with other aviation industry bodies and partners, such as A4A, IATA and ICAO, to foster innovation across the sector. The Committee’s current agenda includes developing a standard biometrics solutions for U.S. airports, Airport API Digital Ecosystem, and collaboration with ACI World IT Task Forces.

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.
