Mexican low-fare carrier Viva Aerobus has selected MRO IT specialist Swiss AviationSoftware (Swiss-AS) to replace the airline’s legacy system with its AMOS software solution.
The software evaluation took place in the context of Viva Aerobus’ strategy to become customer-centric as well as continuing to offer competitive prices in the Mexican market. This initiative also included the modernization of the airline’s IT systems.
Francisco Morgado, engineering and maintenance director at Viva Aerobus, said: “This software allows us to strengthen our high standards of safety and reliability when flying one of the most modern fleets of the world. Besides, Viva Aerobus ultra-low-cost business model is based on a customer focus service, operational efficiency and a constant expansion in order to meet the requirements our growing clientele. And the technology provided by Swiss-AS helps us to achieve these goals.”
Swiss-AS said the airline’s evaluation team “understood that AMOS can support them to further reduce cost in aircraft maintenance and many examples from the AMOS community have shown that AMOS is the right choice when it comes to extensive fleet growth. Swiss-AS sees itself as a long-term partner and with the many low-cost airlines among our customers, we have proven that we understand the philosophy of budget carriers.”
Ronald Schaeuffele, CEO of Swiss-AS, commented: “It is one of AMOS’ benefits that it can be implemented at most airlines without major customisations and to meet the needs of a fast-growing airline – while of course always ensuring the airworthiness of the fleet.”
Viva Aerobus operates 25 Airbus A320s, including two A320neos, on 91 routes to 37 destinations. Swiss-AS, 100%-owned by Swiss International Air Lines, has more than 160 customers worldwide.
