Latin American market leader selects AMOS

Swiss-AS, in cooperation with Lufthansa Systems, are proud to announce that the airlines in the AviancaTaca Holding have selected AMOS as their single maintenance software platform to help position them as the leading force in the Latin American airline market. As a result, Avianca, TACA, Tampa Cargo, and Aerogal will be implementing a unified maintenance software solution through AMOS.

The selection process took approximately 6 months and was very comprehensive. “AMOS was identified at an early stage as a proven and stable product which is recognized in the marketplace as the best-of-breed of MRO software systems” said Ronald Schaeuffele, CEO of Swiss-AS.

AMOS meets highly demanding requirements

The airlines in the AviancaTaca Holding have some very advanced requirements for this software as they intend to introduce it as a multi Air Operator Certificate (multi AOC) organizational single maintenance platform that will provide services to the different operators and thereby substitute the separately acting maintenance systems currently in place. The model is being designed to standardize company policies and procedures affecting the maintenance organization according to industry standards, regulatory requirements, and best practices (organization, processes, etc.)

With AMOS the airlines in the AviancaTaca Holding plan to harmonize the maintenance procedures of the entire group under one common state-of-the-art platform and expect to introduce real business efficiencies in the process.

“We are confident that the implementation of AMOS will enable us to improve on a consolidated maintenance administration for all our airlines, increasing our effectiveness and capabilities, and empowering us with new synergies,” said Fernando Lara, Information Technology Vice President of AviancaTaca.
