AerData is growing its leasing software presence in China under a new agreement with Everbright Financial Leasing, headquartered in Beijing, that will consolidate data from multiple sources using a single Corporate Management System (CMS) platform. The platform will reduce risk for lessors by giving them full control and oversight of asset values, contract information and technical details.


Boeing and Boeing Asia Pacific Aviation Services (BAPAS), a joint venture between The Boeing Company and SIA Engineering Company, has announced the signing of a contract for customised solutions from the Boeing Global Fleet Care portfolio – Fleet Engineering Services – with Singapore Airlines Cargo to support its entire fleet of 747-400 freighters.


BAPAS will provide Engineering, Reliability Program, Planning and Scheduling, Quality and Cargo Maintenance Control Centre services. Available services include customised maintenance programs and job card development, reliability programs, low-utilisation maintenance programs, and engineering analysis and evaluation.


Commsoft has been selected by Africa World Airlines (AWA), a new Ghanaian airline headquartered in Accra, to provide its OASES MRO software to support its fleet of six Embraer ERJ 145 aircraft. AWA has chosen the Core, Airworthiness, Planning, Materials, Line Maintenance Control, Production, Commercial and Warranty modules.


Commsoft has been selected by new Cypriot airline, Tus Airways, to provide its OASES MRO IT system. Tus Airways, which currently operates two Fokker 100s and two Fokker 70s, has opted for the Core, Airworthiness and Planning modules, with an option to add the Materials and Line Maintenance Control modules at a later date.


Commsoft has signed an agreement with UK-based leasing and charter airline, Titan Airways, to supply its OASES MRO IT system. To support its mixed Airbus and Boeing fleet, Titan Airways has selectedthe Core, Airworthiness, Planning, Materials, Line Maintenance Control and Production modules which will be installed on local servers.


The Core module provides the essential system components thatallow operation and integration of all the other functional modules and incorporates the Oracle database, the navigator functionality, the built-in help system and the security manager which controls access rights and privileges. Between them, the other modules will enable Titan Airways to manage continuing airworthiness processes; predict when all maintenancetasks, modifications and defect limitations will become due; ensure that all material is available when required and replenished or repaired when necessary; integrate OASES with suitable data feeds from operations systems; and log labour time expended.


Titan Airways is establishing its own CAMO team to replace an existing third-party service and Commsoft will be providing extensive support in implementing the system for the management of Titan’s A318-112, three A320-200s, A321-211, Boeing 737-400F, 737-300QC, two 757-200s and a 767-300ER.


It is anticipated that the airline will be expanding its fleet in the near future with the addition of a Boeing 737-400 in January 2018 and further A320/A321 aircraft later in the year.


Rusada has signed a five-year agreement with Johannesburg-based Solenta Aviation for its Envision nGen software. The ACMI operator will initially use it for CAMO, before rolling out additional functionality for procurement, logistics stock management, and production, as well as personnel scheduling and training.


Rusada says its Envision maintenance solution has been deployed by Solomon Airlines as part of a technology refreshand consolidation project. The airline, based in Honiara International Airport, is the national carrier for the Solomon Islands and operates a fleet of de Havilland Canada Twin Otters and a Bombardier Dash 8 for its domestic operations and an Airbus A320 aircraft for international flights. Before the technology project, Air Solomon’s maintenance information was managedusing several separate legacy systems. The airline identified that by consolidatingmany of these processes into a single system they would increase situational awareness and improve regulatory compliance monitoring.


Swiss AviationSoftware has announced that Icelandic airline WOW air has selected AMOS as their preferred MRO software solution. The airline has opted for the open source and licence-free SQLPostgre database, in combination with Swiss-AS’ AMOS Operation Services, 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 requirements that AMOS is able to meet.


With a motivated project team and 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 the near future using e-signatures.


Swiss AviationSoftware has signed an umbrella agreement with Boeing that paves the way for future Boeing Global Fleet Care customers to rely on its AMOS MRO software using Microsoft Azure cloud.


Low cost carrier Norwegian Air Shuttle is the first airline to rely on Boeing’s lifecycle solution in combination with AMOS. In June 2017, Norwegian’s newly arrived Boeing 737 MAX fleet went live in AMOS, and the Boeing 787 Dreamliner fleet will follow early next year. By then, the entire fleet of Norwegian will be managed in AMOS, as Norwegian is a long-term AMOS customer and already controls its 737-800 fleet with AMOS.
