Transaero Airlines – second AMOS customer in Russia

Swiss-AS is pleased to announce its latest customer: Transaero Airlines, the second Russian airline to join the AMOS community. After an RFP and meetings in Russia and Switzerland, the MRO software evaluation of Transaero Airlines verified AMOS as the best product to support the airline’s ambitious increasing fleet plans.

“After two years of MRO software market analysis and evaluation, Transaero Airlines had decided to implement AMOS as the leading product on the market which covers all business processes of aircraft engineering and maintenance, logistics, store management etc,” states Aleksandr Shipulin, Lead Engineer at Transaero Airlines.

The implementation project is planned for 14-16 months and supposed to start with the kick-off event early this year. The first major milestone will be the end of the definition phase which includes successfully conducted workshops and a detailed fit-gap analysis.

The training organisation for almost 700 potential AMOS users will be a challenge and is planned as a combination of classroom training, e-learning and a train-the-trainer approach.

Implementation of Boeing Toolbox interface

As an operator of a large Boeing fleet with different aircraft types, Transaero Airlines will take advantage of the interface landscape that links AMOS with Boeing Toolbox functions. Due to these interfaces, AMOS/Boeing customers benefit from the electronic transfer of taskcards from the Boeing Toolbox to AMOS which eases revision handling and makes manual data entry redundant.
