HIA Implements IATA e-Invoicing System

Hamad International Airport (HIA), in cooperation with International Air Transport Association (IATA), has implemented the IATA Simplified Invoicing and Settlement (SIS) platform, an electronic invoicing system.

This, HIA said streamlines the air transport industry’s billing and settlement activities by optimizing and reducing the cost of back-office processes, unifying invoicing standards and reducing paper waste and ultimately fostering a simpler and more efficient environment for airlines and aviation business partners.

Since the implementation of the SIS platform, HIA has billed some 46 invoices a month for as many as 23 airlines as well as billed a total revenue of QR150mn a year with a significant cost saving of 2% per year.

HIA’s migration to the SIS platform sets to adhere to the latest invoice data standards for the aviation industry.
