Vistara adopts AMOS MRO solution developed by Swiss-AS
Nov 25, 2019: Vistara, a joint venture of TATA and Singapore Airlines, has selected AMOS as their end-to-end MRO software solution for its entire fleet of Airbus and Boeing aircraft. AMOS is a comprehensive, fully-integrated MRO software solution being developed and distributed by Swiss AviationSoftware.
Vistara’s newly phased-in Boeing B737-800NG aircraft will be directly managed in AMOS. This project has a very special, non-standard set-up in order to efficiently support the airline’s requirements. The implementation will be split into two main phases: Phase one will focus on the B737 fleet into AMOS with a planned go-live as early as autumn 2019. The next phase foresees the transfer of the complete fleet including Airbus and future Boeing 787 Dreamliner into AMOS.
Ronald Schaeuffele, CEO of Swiss-AS, says, "Vistara is a strategic, high-profile customer for us and we are honored to welcome them to the AMOS Community. India is a very important market for Swiss-AS ever since the first Indian customer signed for AMOS in the nineties and now, with Vistara on board, we further increase our footprint in India."
Vistara has hired engineering and maintenance staff who are already familiar with AMOS. This in-house AMOS know-how will help Vistara accelerate the implementation and reduce the time devoted to training and the general familiarization process regarding AMOS. In addition, Vistara has skilled in-house resources able to manage the data migration process. This will facilitate the data upload of the newly arrived B737-800NG aircraft into AMOS.
Ravinder Pal Singh, chief information & innovation officer, Vistara, said, "We have always embraced and invested in meaningful technologies that enable our growth plan and enhance differentiation for Vistara. We’re committed to our approach of digitalisation of processes and lead innovation in Indian aviation. Our investment in AMOS will help us gain insights into our fleet’s engineering health, enhance productivity of resources and aircraft with greater mobility and information on fingertips. Overall, it will also be a key platform for continuous innovation in maintenance and overhaul of aircraft and its supply-chain."
Earlier this month, Lufthansa German Airlines and Lufthansa Cargo also joined the AMOS community with a scheduled first Go-Live in autumn 2020, followed by two later cut-overs in 2021. The initiative will see both airlines and their entire fleets adopting AMOS, a maintenance and engineering software.
