A group decision

Thomas Cook Belgium, Condor Berlin and Condor Flugdienst are long-term customers of Swiss-AS. Recently, the remaining members of the Thomas Cook Group (TC UK and Scandinavia) decided to replace their legacy system with AMOS. The decision to implement AMOS group-wide across Europe was the result of the latest assessment of the group’s requirements and the new corporate strategy. The benchmark established AMOS as the preferred solution for the travel group.

“We are very pleased to cooperate with the entire Thomas Cook Group. The fact that AMOS is well-known in the group and has now been chosen for all group members, re-confirms AMOS’ functional maturity as well as the good relationship Swiss-AS holds with its customers,” says Ronald Schaeuffele, CEO of Swiss-AS.

Paul Horstink, Head of Group Maintenance organisation at Thomas Cook, states: “The decision to bring all the maintenance organisations of the Thomas Cook airlines together in a Group Maintenance Organisation has been made a year ago and we are well advanced in the implementation phase. AMOS is a huge enabler to maximise the synergy effects in bringing together the organisations”.

Multi-Entity Support for five AOCs

One of Swiss-AS’ latest developments, the Multi-Entity Support, was one key factor for being awarded the contract. This function hosts and integrates multiple financially independent companies on one system, allowing an airline group with subsidiaries in different countries to consolidate all activities on one system while still complying with local regulations.

The Multi-Entity Support in AMOS enables the Thomas Cook Group to manage its multiple AOCs, with multiple financial accounting, maintenance programs and local authorities within one system while realising substantial synergies on group level.
