Nordica chooses OASES for its start-up airline operation

5th April 2016 – Commsoft is delighted to announce that its industry-leading MRO IT system, OASES, has been chosen by Nordica to support its recent start-up airline operation. The contract is for five years and five concurrent users.

One hundred percent owned by the Government of Estonia, Nordica, recently rebranded from Nordic Aviation Group (NAG), was established in September 2015 to provide the country with scheduled flight connections. In November, the airline began operations with flights on eight different routes from Tallinn – to Amsterdam, Brussels, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Oslo, Kiev, Trondheim and Vilnius.

The initial flights have been operated under contract to Nordica in wet lease or co-operative arrangements with other airlines, including BMI Regional and Adria Airways, both of which are OASES users. Adria is also currently providing the flight operator’s certificate, commercial platform and ticketing system.

Nordica has now taken delivery of the first of its own aircraft, a Bombardier CRJ-700, and plans to use OASES to establish its own AOC and CAMO approvals with an expanding CRJ-700 and CRJ-900 fleet.

A ‘best-of-breed’ system, OASES offers an industry-leading technical sophistication whilst being intuitively user-friendly. To allow for scalability, the system is structured in a modular format and Nordica has selected the Core, Airworthiness and Planning modules which will be hosted on Commsoft’s OASES Cloud service. Implementation and initial training are scheduled to start immediately.

Nordica has also indicated that it will be using OASES in conjunction with the Aviolinx RAIDO operations system, the interface for which has already been deployed by other OASES customers, including Loganair and SmartLynx.

Nick Godwin, Commsoft Managing Director, commented:
“We’re delighted that Nordica has chosen to join the growing worldwide family of OASES users, particularly given that theirs is a start-up operation. We’re looking forward to working closely with them to ensure a speedy and successful implementation and a long-term business relationship.”
