At the Euro Airport Basel/Mulhouse, Swiss-AS’ neighbour FARNAIR recently went live with the advanced M&E system AMOS. The crossover from the legacy system was smooth without any operational impact and all modules went live simultaneously. AMOS is implemented enterprise-wide and for all types of aircraft at FARNAIR (including all eight outstations).

Due to the proximity of both companies, the Swiss cargo carrier attended a multitude of AMOS standard trainings in-house at Swiss-AS’ headquarters. In addition the AMOS users were familiarised with the new MRO software via e-learning and on-the-job training. Besides the obvious advantage of taking part in the non-customised training sessions at Swiss-AS’ premises, this project did not differ from any other implementation although Swiss-AS and FARNAIR are both situated at the same airport.


This implementation project is considered to be extremely lean as there were no customisations of the software at all, combined with a high project commitment and availability at the customer’s side. It is always difficult to grant sufficient resources and time for project work especially where small airlines are concerned.

The Go-Live was almost completely handled by FARNAIR itself and Swiss-AS just supported the post Go-Live phase with a number of trainers, developers and the project manager.

Data cleansing, mapping and transfer turned out to be the major challenge within this implementation. FARNAIR’s decision to hire experts that were exclusively dedicated to the data transfer task, turned out to be a good one as it meant that this normally time consuming process was considerably faster than usual.


The FARNAIR Group, having its headquarters in Basel, Switzerland, is composed of the two airlines FARNAIR Switzerland (Basel, Switzerland) and FARNAIR Hungary, FARNAIR Handling (both Budapest, Hungary) and FARNAIR Rail Logistics Europe. With more than 25 years experience in the aviation business, FARNAIR offers express air cargo transport and logistics as well as high quality individualised passenger transportation. Every night, the FARNAIR Europe freight aircraft convey cargo from various locations all over Europe. The passenger aircraft is employed on behalf of the Swiss Confederation for flights to Kosovo as well as for charter flights within Europe and to North Africa. As one of the biggest ATR operators in Europe, FARNAIR operates a fleet of 15 ATR 72-200/42-320 and two BEECH 1900. The Swiss airline executes all Line Maintenance and Base Maintenance up to C-Check in-house for its entire fleet.
