MANAMA: Oman Air has selected Swiss-AS' 'AMOS' maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) software solution to replace its legacy system.
Following a thorough selection process, which included two tenders and a number of presentations, Oman Air found AMOS to be the optimum solution in replacing its legacy system. AMOS fully meets Oman Air's need to benefit from state-of-the-art developments and industry benchmarks in MRO software, to sustain and extend its competitive advantage.
Oman's national carrier has an open and flexible approach to re-engineering its processes in accordance with proven aviation best-practices, which will be implemented with AMOS.
The goal of implementation is sustainable cost reduction, as well as an improvement of operational efficiency.
Operational effectiveness and cost reduction are two vital areas for Oman Air and we are pleased to be adopting the highly-regarded Swiss-AS AMOS MRO software, which will help us to manage our maintenance, engineering and logistics requirements," Oman Air chief executive Wayne Pearce said.
The implementation project in Muscat is expected to take approximately 10 months and designated AMOS users will be made familiar with the new MRO software via e-learning and classic classroom training. Swiss-AS' AMOS Operation Services team will support Oman Air in terms of server and database operation.
Prior to the official project start, Swiss-AS is teaming up with the Middle East airline to evaluate and size the required hardware for the operation of AMOS. "During the extensive evaluation period we have got to know the team of Oman Air as very friendly and reliable business partners and we are looking forward to starting the project," Swiss-AS chief executive Ronald Schaeuffele said.
