AMOS expands its presence in Russia
Swiss-AS is more than pleased to welcome Aeroflot, Russia’s leading airline, in the AMOS community. AMOS won the official tender process which was hosted by the Russian Government early in 2013. Since 2010, the Aeroflot Group member Rossiya Airlines has been using AMOS to maintain their fleet. On a corporate level the Aeroflot Group is considering to roll out AMOS not only to the de facto national flag carrier Aeroflot, but likewise to some of its subsidiaries.
“It is great to see that we have made inroads into the Russian market in recent years and have gained such big market share and popularity in Russia. It is an honour for us to deploy AMOS at Aeroflot and support their technical division with the latest industry trends and know-how,” says Ronald Schaeuffele, CEO of Swiss-AS.
AMOS implemented for entire heterogeneous fleet
Aeroflot is now eager to introduce AMOS with the vision to support the Aeroflot technical department in implementing the latest innovations in the MRO business while assuring full compliance with international standards.
The ultimate goal of the scheduled 18-month project is to benefit from the full breadth and depth of AMOS once the implementation process is successfully completed. Aeroflot will use the MRO software for all aircraft types in order to assure a smooth implementation process and achieve an early return on investment.
Celebrating its 90th anniversary in 2013, Aeroflot is Russia’s flagship airline and the largest national air company. Proudly being a member of the SkyTeam global airline alliance, Aeroflot with its partnering members provides service to more than 1’000 destinations in 178 countries. Aeroflot operates one of the most modern and youngest fleets in Europe counting 140 aircraft formed by Airbus, Boeing and Sukhoi airliners with an average airplane age between five and six years old. In 2012 Aeroflot carried 17.7 million passengers (27.5 million passengers as Aeroflot Group), continuously showing the best results in modern Russia’s history. In June 2013 Aeroflot was for the second time awarded by SKYTRAX as The Best Airline in Eastern Europe. Find more at www.aeroflot.com.
