- Vistara, an Indian carrier and joint venture between TATA and Singapore Airlines, has selected AMOS as its MRO software solution. The airline recently inaugurated its international operations and aims to expand into geographies across the world as it inducts new aircraft from Airbus as well as Boeing.
Vistara’s newly phased-in Boeing B737-800NG aircraft will also be directly managed in AMOS. According to Swiss-AS, implementation will be split into two main phases: Phase one will focus on the B737 fleet into AMOS while the next phase foresees the transfer of the complete fleet including Airbus and future Boeing 787 Dreamliner.
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.
With the selection of AMOS, Vistara aims to ensure operational efficiencies in all maintenance areas that will further enable the airline to launch its digital transformation process.
Sisira Kanta Dash, Senior Vice President – Engineering, Vistara, said, “AMOS will integrate our maintenance processes and provide us with the required commercial and operational flexibility across the fleet. We want to create a futurist engineering division of Vistara and this is one of the key steps in that direction.”
