The start-up carrier implemented the cloud-based solution in just three months for the start of commercial operations earlier this month.

Akasa Air has gone live with the AMOS MRO software solution within three months of project commencement. AMOS is a fully integrated MRO software solution developed and distributed by Swiss AviationSoftware (Swiss-AS), a 100% subsidiary of Swiss International Air Lines.

Since Akasa Air was slated to commence commercial operations in the summer of 2022, it needed new software to support the airworthiness management of its fleet. The implementation was finalised after just three months of project work with a successful go-live on time with the start of commercial operations with Akasa Air’s first Boeing 737 MAX earlier this month. 

‘With AMOS, Akasa Air has chosen a scalable software that has proven to be the right choice many times when it comes to supporting airlines from start-up status to a mature airline coming along with a significant fleet increase,’ said Fabiano Faccoli, CEO of Swiss-AS. “We are proud to further intensify our AMOS footprint in India,” he added. 

Being a start-up airline with brand-new aircraft, Akasa Air required minor data transfer, which was also a deciding factor in the project duration. The second phase of Akasa Air’s implementation of AMOS software will increase the usage of the software functionalities and the automation of the processes. 

Akasa Air has contracted for Swiss-AS’ cloud hosting service, which, when combined with AOS (management of application and database server), provides it with a fully cloud-hosted AMOS environment and ideal operating conditions to benefit from the full potential of AMOS. The carrier’s decision to opt for a cloud hosting service negates the need to operate technical infrastructure on-premise, thereby saving costs. 

Akasa Air has 72 Boeing 737 MAX jetliners on order and requires the software to be scalable and capable of supporting its fleet growth without adding complexity. As per its current plans, Akasa Air is slated to induct all 72 aircraft on order by 2027. The airline’s Founder CEO Vinay Dube, also recently announced that Akasa Air could place an even larger aircraft order in 2024.
