AMOS emerges as best fit for Oman Air

Swiss-AS is pleased to announce Oman Air as one of the latest newcomers to the AMOS community.

Following a thorough selection process, which included two tenders and a number of presentations, Oman Air finally found AMOS to be the optimum solution in replacing its legacy system.

AMOS fully meets Oman Air’s need to benefit from state-of-the-art developments and industry benchmarks in MRO software, to sustain and extend its competitive advantage. The national carrier has an open and flexible approach to re-engineering its processes in accordance with proven aviation best-practices, which will be implemented with AMOS. The goal here is sustainable cost reduction, as well as an improvement of the operational efficiency and effectiveness of the engineering division.

Ronald Schaeuffele, CEO of Swiss-AS says: “During the extensive evaluation period we have got to know the team of Oman Air as very friendly and reliable business partners and we are looking forward to starting the project.”

Wayne Pearce, CEO of Oman Air, adds: “Operational effectiveness and cost reduction are two vital areas for Oman Air and we are pleased to be adopting the highly-regarded Swiss-AS AMOS MRO software, which will help us to manage our maintenance, engineering and logistics requirements.“

Oman Air relies on Swiss-AS’ AMOS Operation Services

The implementation project in Muscat is expected to take approximately ten months and designated AMOS users will be made familiar with the new MRO software via e-learning and classic classroom training. Swiss-AS’ AMOS Operation Services (AOS) team will support Oman Air in terms of server and database operation.

Prior to the official project start, Swiss-AS was teaming up with the Middle East airline to evaluate and size the required hardware for the operation of AMOS.

About Oman Air

Today it is a full-fledged commercial airline that serves more than 40 domestic and international destinations. The fleet comprises 30 aircraft of the types A330, B737, Embraer E175 and ATR42. Furthermore the Middle East carrier has ordered six B787 that should be phased in from 2015 onwards, together with additional A330s and B737s.
