Ernest Airlines takes off with AMOS

– Quick start and lean implementation 

Start-up relies on proven AMOS software system
Swiss-AS is pleased to announce that AMOS has been selected by the Italian start-up airline Ernest Airlines. The low-cost carrier is in the fortunate position that some staff members are already familiar with AMOS – a good basis for the envisaged swift implementation and quick project start. Ernest Airlines relies on a Swiss-AS “care-free package”, a combination of the proven AMOS Operation Services (= AOS, covering the application and database administration) and hosting.

“It is a pleasure for us to accompany Ernest Airlines right from the beginning of this adventure to establish a new airline and to support its growth in future,” states Ronald Schaeuffele, CEO of Swiss-AS.

Despite the fact that national flag carriers and some of the biggest MRO providers worldwide have recently chosen AMOS, Swiss-AS is keen to emphasise that AMOS is also designed to fully meet the requirements of small organisations. To accommodate the needs of start-ups and smaller airlines on tight budgets, Swiss-AS also supports AMOS implementations on the open-source database PostgreSQL.

“AMOS is the reliable system we were looking for the ERNEST CAMO and Swiss-AS has been able to provide a solution suitable for a start-up looking at fleet 
expansion,” states Carlo Besenzoni, Continuing Airworthiness Director at Ernest Airlines.
