Press Release – 1st September 2016
Commsoft is delighted to announce that its industry-leading MRO IT system, OASES, has been chosen by Pionair, the Australian air charter and air freight specialists, to support the three BAe 146-200 regional airliners it will be using for its new airline freight operations.
Pionair will be Commsoft's second active customer in Australia and this new contract represents the eighth deal won for OASES in 2016.
A ‘best-of-breed’ system, OASES offers a highly impressive level of technical sophistication whilst being intuitively user-friendly. To allow for scalability, the system is structured in a modular format and for its new operations, Pionair has selected the Core, Airworthiness, Planning and Materials modules. Warranty and Line Maintenance modules may be added at a later stage.
The system will be hosted on Commsoft’s OASES Private Cloud service.
Nick Godwin, Commsoft Managing Director, commented:
“This contract win is excellent news for us and confirms yet again – for the eighth time this year – the technological, operational and commercial benefits that OASES can deliver. It also confirms that the OASES community is a truly global one and we’re looking forward to working with Pionair to ensure a speedy and successful implementation.”
Pionair, with over 20 years’ experience, is one of Australia’s leading air charter operators specialising in F.I.F.O., Air Cargo (dangerous and non-dangerous goods), Ad Hoc Air Charter and ACMI services.
The company’s Head Office is in Sydney but it also has a full time presence in Cairns, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sunshine Coast and Port Moresby. Pionair’s new airline operations with OASES, which will be headquartered in Bankstown, NSW, are scheduled to start in September.
