Swiss AviationSoftware (Swiss-AS) has opened a new office in Tokyo in cooperation with Lufthansa Systems.
The software company said its new East Asia office in Tokyo was an extension of its existing Singapore branch and staff will report to and closely cooperate with AMOS’ Asia Pacific business unit.
Swiss-AS said a range of factors contributed to the decision to open the office. “Since the opening of our Singapore office in 2013, the Asia Pacific customer base has grown by over 400 per cent,” the company said. “Even though Singapore is a key Asian hub, East Asian countries, such as China, Japan, Taiwan and North and South Korea, can be reached more efficiently from the new Tokyo office. The new office location also benefits from a more favourable time zone difference with Oceania.”
The company cited cultural differences between East Asia, Southeast Asia and Oceania, “which require specific approaches for the different sub-regions”. Splitting responsibility for business development into smaller regional areas allowed for “a more focused strategy and customer approach,” Swiss-AS said.
The MRO software company added: “Swiss-AS is convinced that the Asia Pacific aviation market will again become a driving force in the global aviation market; against this background, we consider our growing presence in the Asia Pacific market key to our long-term success.”
