Itqan all set for take-off

Emirates-based integrator Itqan has signed an agreement with Spanish IT services counterpart Indra to target the UAE market for aviation technology solutions

Emirates-based integrator Itqan has signed an agreement with Spanish IT services counterpart Indra to target the UAE market for aviation technology solutions. Both are eager to get their slice of a market set to be worth more than US$80m a year by 2010.

18,000-strong powerhouse Indra boasts a range of air traffic management systems within its portfolio and is likely to use Itqan's local IT expertise to introduce its latest applications to the market.

A raft of new projects are being implemented in the UAE aviation sector and that plays firmly into supporting sectors, such as the technology market, according to Firas Al Jabi, general manager at 100-strong Itqan.

He said: "Since its establishment, Itqan has been committed to improving the IT sector in the UAE. We have partnered with some of the leading IT companies in the world and have high expectations of the fast growing aviation technology market."
