Corendon Dutch Airlines is to use Commsoft’s OASES MRO IT system to support its fleet of three Boeing 737-800s.
The deal is Commsoft’s first contract win of the year, as well as being the company’s first win in the Netherlands. Part of the international Corendon group of companies, the airline began operations under its own AOC in 2011, and currently operates charter flights out of Amsterdam Schiphol Airport and Maastricht Aachen Airport to destinations including Spain, Portugal, Greece, Turkey, Egypt and Morocco.
Corendon will be using the OASES system’s Core, Airworthiness, Materials, Line Maintenance Control and Planning modules, and has also expressed strong interest in adding the proposed Compliance module when it becomes available, said Commsoft.
All modules will be accessed through the supplier’s private cloud service, avoiding any need for the installation of additional hardware by the operator.
Nick Godwin, Commsoft’s managing director, said initial implementation meetings had already started with the airline’s team and that the system was due to go live in time for the peak season.
Rob Smakman, Corendon Dutch Airlines’ director of engineering and maintenance, said it was “delighted that we found the right MRO IT partner in OASES. There is a good match between the companies and we are looking forward to start working with the system in the upcoming weeks.”
Last year saw Commsoft sign up 20 new direct contracted customers globally in total. OASES currently supports over 130 aviation operations in more than 55 different countries.
