Philippine Low Cost Carrier Cebu Pacific – another fast-growing airline on our customer list

The Swiss-AS’ business year 2013 ended on a positive note with Cebu Pacific signing for AMOS. Cebu Pacific has selected AMOS to implement a proven tool that supports the maintenance management activities of their Technical department. The fact that AMOS is trusted by almost 130 customers and Swiss-AS is now represented in the Asia-Pacific region since April 2013 convinced Cebu Pacific to enter into a long term contract with Swiss-AS.

“AMOS will support Cebu Pacific to streamline their maintenance related processes and offer the prerequisites for informed business decisions which will finally result in an efficient management of the maintenance costs,” says Ronald Schaeuffele, CEO of Swiss-AS.

A swift implementation envisaged

Cebu Pacific is the second airline from Asia to sign for AMOS in 2013, marking a big success for the Asia-Pacific AMOS office. The implementation will mainly be steered and performed by the Singapore-based AMOS team. Initially, only the ATR fleet will be managed with AMOS since the maintenance requirements of the other aircraft-types of Cebu are currently handled by full technical management contracts.

The strategy is to roll out AMOS at the Philippine LCC in about six months engaging the customer in a very lean “as-is” implementation, allowing for a quick return on investment. In addition to the Swiss-AS’ standard services provided during and after the project, Cebu Pacific has opted for the AMOS Operations Service (AOS) to obtain special support to source out the database and application management.

“We are delighted to have selected Swiss-AS and the AMOS product to deliver full Fleet Technical Management capability on our ATR fleet. The ATR fleet plays a vital role in our domestic network here in the Philippines and we are looking forward to the benefits that a world class product such as AMOS will deliver the organisation,” said Ian Wolfe, Senior Adviser, Engineering and Fleet Management, Cebu Pacific.

“Combined with an aggressive implementation plan and a dedicated project team from both Swiss-AS and Cebu Pacific, the knowledge and experience that the Cebu Pacific team will gain, will lead us further to our vision of adopting world-class Engineering services and process management. Partnering with Swiss-AS and using the AMOS tool represent a significant step in that journey.”
