After intensive MRO IT evaluation, CommutAir opts for AMOS

Swiss-AS, in cooperation with Lufthansa Systems, are very pleased to announce the latest success of the AMOS branch office in the US: CommutAir has recently decided in favour of AMOS and will be the 1st AMOS customer in the States offering passenger air transportation.

“CommutAir is a strategic customer for us to further strengthen our position in the United States. We are convinced that the implementation of AMOS will provide CommutAir with a competitive edge by introducing industry proven processes and practices,” says Ronald Schaeuffele, CEO of Swiss-AS.

Joel T. Raymond, Executive VP at CommutAir states, "After thoroughly evaluating numerous MRO IT software platforms it became evident to us AMOS offered our complex maintenance operations the "total" package in terms of technology, support and value. We look forward to deploying AMOS in the coming months which we believe will result in cost and process efficiencies across this key unit of the company."

Project already launched

After a long and meticulous selection process Commutair decided that AMOS was the most complete as well as the most user friendly MRO IT solution available.

The regional carrier will be migrating from an in-house developed system to AMOS with a planned seven-month implementation project. The project kick-off has already taken place at CommutAir’s operations centre in Ohio which laid the foundations for a very lean implementation without any customer-specific software modifications.

CommutAir performs all of its own Line, Base and Heavy Check Maintenance at its hangar at Hopkins International Airport in Cleveland, OH (CLE) with satellite maintenance operations in Newark, NJ (EWR) and Dulles, VA (IAD).
