AMOS selected by leading low-cost carrier in Turkey

Pegasus Airlines has recently awarded Swiss-AS to implement the M&E software AMOS.

The onsite AMOS presentations as well as a visit to a reference customer finally triggered the decision that AMOS is the system that best meets Pegasus’ demands.

“The implementation of AMOS at Pegasus Airlines will not only support their future growth but also allow the LLC to improve internal maintenance procedures, while maintaining a high level of safety in the operation of the fleet,” states Ronald Schaeuffele, CEO of Swiss-AS.

AMOS – a community product

During the pre-sales phase Pegasus did not only carefully evaluate the functional scope as well as technology of AMOS, but also had a close look at the service package that Swiss-AS offers its customers to ensure an efficient and successful implementation. The plan is to implement AMOS without any specific customisations since the system fully covers the requirements of the low-cost carrier. AMOS is a community product that has “grown” over many years due to individual customer requests as well as strategic developments having been implemented. In recent times, more and more AMOS customers have decided to implement the Swiss MRO software “as is” and thereby benefit from leaner implementations in terms of complexity, time and cost.

Pegasus Airlines is planning to integrate AMOS with other systems used in the organisation, such as Flight Operations, Human Resources, Finance, Accounting and Electronic Flight Bag. With the fully implemented AMOS, all maintenance processes in Pegasus Airlines are planned to be managed electronically.
