Another Low Fare Carrier signs for AMOS

Swiss-AS is proud to announce that Icelandic WOW air has selected AMOS as their preferred MRO software solution. As a cost-conscious LCC, the airline has opted for the open source and licence-free SQLPostgre database, in combination with Swiss-AS’ AMOS Operation Services (AOS), which covers the application and database server administration.

Currently the project team is successfully carrying out tests to run AMOS in the Amazon Cloud. Apart from running IT applications cloud-based, it is also WOW air’s policy to bundle all software in a centralised data warehouse – both being requirements that AMOS is able to meet.

Ronald Schaeuffele, CEO of Swiss-AS says: “This latest deal reflects once more that AMOS has a strong footprint among the LCCs. AMOS will surely play a significant role in WOW air’s growth plans for the next years.”

“WOW air uses top of the line IT solutions on the market with the aim of being one of the most technically advanced airlines in the world. AMOS supports that idea and fits very well into the IT suite WOW air is using on a daily basis,” says Skúli Mogensen, founder and CEO of WOW air.

With a very motivated project team and a highly committed management, the airline has set itself an ambitious goal for a swift implementation within only a couple of months. On top of that, AMOS supports WOW air’s aim to have paperless maintenance in near future.
