Spanish airline ALBASTAR chooses Commsoft’s OASES

6th December 2018 - Commsoft is pleased to announce that Albastar has chosen to support its airline operations with OASES, Commsoft’s industry-leading MRO IT system.

Albastar is a privately-owned Spanish airline, founded in 2010 by Italian and British entrepreneurs from the tourism and transport sectors to provide on-demand flight services in collaboration with major Spanish, Italian and other European tour operators. Based in Palma de Mallorca, Albastar operates mainly charter flights from its principal basis of Palma de Mallorca, Milan Malpensa and Milan Bergamo as well as seasonal services from Lourdes. The fleet to be supported by OASES will initially include four Boeing 737-800 aircraft.

Renowned for its technical sophistication as well as its intuitive user interface, OASES is structured in a modular format to provide maximum flexibility and scalability and Albastar has opted for the Core, Airworthiness, Materials, Planning and Production modules with an option to add the Line Maintenance Control module at a later date.  All modules will be accessed through Commsoft’s Private Cloud service, avoiding any need for the airline to invest in new hardware.

Nick Godwin, Commsoft’s Managing Director, commented: “We’re delighted to be welcoming Albastar to the ever-growing global community of OASES users. This is the ninth new OASES contract we’ve signed in 2018, our second in Spain, and we already have a dedicated team working on-site in close co-operation with Albastar’s management and technical specialists to ensure an early and successful implementation.”

OASES is currently being used to support more than 130 aviation operations in over 55 different countries, including national and regional carriers, business aviation and charter operators, cargo specialists, leasing companies, MROs and specialist rotable stockists.

Michael Harrington, Managing Director of Albastar was very pleased to announce the deal today which continues Albastar on the road to completing their fleet renewal program and several key investments in IT and Control Systems.  

Jaime Bestard, Albastar’s Chief Operating Officer, commented: “We’ve been pleased to learn that working with Commsoft not only can we get a very sound solution with OASES, but we can be supported with business solutions that are going beyond the scope of an IT system supplier”. 

Albastar has a fleet of four B737-800 and two B737-400 aircraft.  Over 600,000 passengers are flown each year to over 140 destinations.  The airline is a member of the AIRE Association in Brussels.
