Somon Air signs 5-year contract to use OASES MRO IT system

7th December 2015

Somon Air, a private airline based in Dushanbe, Tajikistan, has selected OASES, the leading MRO IT system from engineering and maintenance systems expert Commsoft, for its airline CAMO activities. OASES will control the airline's six-strong fleet of Boeing 737 'Classic' and NG aircraft.

The fast-growing airline has signed a 10 concurrent users, five-year contract with Commsoft, with implementation and set-up services provided by FL Technics scheduled to start straight away. FL Technics will use OASES to manage the Continuing Airworthiness of Somon Air’s fleet.  The contract covers three modules: Core, Airworthiness and Planning. It also allows the airline access to Commsoft's private cloud to manage its OASES operations.

Nick Godwin, Managing Director of Commsoft, commented:
“Somon Air's decision to entrust its airline CAMO activities to OASES is a major endorsement of our successful strategy with key CAMO partners across the world. It also represents a market break-through for OASES in Central Asia, and we are delighted to have entered into this business relationship."

Robert Bryant, Engineering and Maintenance Director for Somon Air explains, "I am very happy to initiate this tripartite relationship between Somon Air, Commsoft and FL Technics. Our past experience of FL Technic capability using the OASES system convinced me that the experience they have gained jointly with Commsoft would be of great benefit to a new Airline like Somon Air. The partnership brings together the Aviation Engineering systems expertise of Commsoft with the Continuing Airworthiness management capability of FL Technics. The purpose of the partnership is to elevate Somon Air to self- perform all Continuing Airworthiness functions over the next two years using a cloud based OASES system controlled from Dushanbe. Following on from the acquisition of Part 145 accreditation, this is a further step in the development of the airline and the Aviation population of Tajikistan."

Somon Air is the first private airline in Tajikistan with an office headquartered in Dushanbe. The airline operations are based at Dushanbe International Airport. Somon Air started operating on 5 February 2008 with regular flights to Moscow and Dubai and also serves as the primary carrier of high ranking officials of Tajikistan. Since formation, Somon Air has been primarily focused on passenger service and transportation to Eastern Europe and other locations. Most flights to international destinations operate from Dushanbe.

Somon Air currently operates a number of international services, linking the Tajikistani cities of Dushanbe and Khujand to Russian cities including Moscow, St Petersburg, Krasnoyarsk, Orenburg and Ekaterinburg. The company also serves the cities of Almaty, Dubai, Frankfurt, Istanbul and Urumqi. Charters are available, including an annual programme to Saudi Arabia, specifically to cater for the Hajj pilgrimage, which also takes in the Russian cities of Khanti-Mansiysk and Nizhnevartovsk. A domestic route connects the cities of Dushanbe and Khujand.

The current fleet is composed of six aircraft: 2 x Boeing 737-300; 2 x Boeing 737-800 and 2 x Boeing 737-900ER. One of these aircraft is already under FL Technics CAMO control in OASES, while the remaining fleet will be transferred progressively from a Turkish CAMO organisation.
