Hong Kong-based low-cost carrier Greater Bay Airlines has selected to use Swiss-AS software, joining the AMOS community.
Greater Bay is expected to commence operations soon, with three initial 737-800 aircraft and plans to expand its fleet to more than 30 aircraft by 2026.
The airline expects to make full use of the scalability of Swiss-AS’ AMOS software to support these growth plans. The core AMOS MRO system has already been integrated with Greater Bay’s ecosystem, with go-live of the software in September.
The airline has also selected flydocs to provide an asset management solution in which it will be able to automate and digitise its aircraft records. The AMOS and flydocs systems will be fully integrated. Lufthansa Technik will provide CAMO services.
“We searched the market for a provider that does not only deliver a system to us, but could support our rapid implementation requirements and the growth of the airline,” said the airline’s GM engineering Darryl Chan. “We were delighted to select Swiss-AS as the solution provider, working with our suite of services from Lufthansa Technik and flydocs.”
Greater Bay has also entrusted Swiss-AS as a cloud and operational services provider by subscribing to its ‘AMOS Cloud Hosting’ package.
Swiss-AS said it had designed a cloud infrastructure that “ensures smooth operation whilst adhering to the latest IT and security standards”. The Swiss-AS hosting suite comes with the ‘AMOS Operation Service’s (AOS) that cover all duties arising from the AMOS application server and PostgreSQL database administration and include the continuous monitoring of all operational system parameters.
Swiss-AS’ head of AMOS Asia Pacific Pierluigi Calù said: “Greater Bay’s team did an outstanding job by implementing AMOS while at the same time seeking to receive the Air Operator’s Certificate (AOC), and we couldn’t be more proud of supporting them in achieving this huge milestone.
“Notwithstanding the smallness of the team, Greater Bay managed – in a record time of three months – to get the approval from their local authority regarding all relevant airworthiness processes, leveraging the AMOS standard business processes. Despite working remotely, achieving this result was possible thanks to the extensive commitment and close collaboration where both GBA and Swiss-AS worked as one team.”
