Guernsey-based Aurigny Air Services Ltd has chosen OASES, Commsoft’s industry-leading MRO IT system, to support its fleet of Embraer, ATR and Dornier aircraft.
Wholly owned by the States of Guernsey since nationalisation in 2003, Aurigny connects Guernsey with destinations in the Channel Islands and U.K. flying scheduled and occasional charter services. One of the longest serving regional airlines in the world, established in 1968, Aurigny has just been voted best short-haul airline by consumer magazine ‘Which’.
Implementation of OASES will begin shortly and the system will be shared by Aurigny's sister company, Anglo Normandy Aero Engineering.
Combining a technical sophistication with an intuitive user interface, OASES is structured in a modular format to provide maximum flexibility and scalability. Aurigny has selected the Core, Airworthiness, Planning, Materials Management, Production and Line Maintenance Control modules which will be accessed through Commsoft’s Private Cloud service.
Nick Godwin, Commsoft’s Managing Director, commented: “We’re delighted that Aurigny has opted for OASES and it’s particularly gratifying that we won this contract against some strong competition from several other MRO IT systems. We’re looking forward to working closely with Aurigny to ensure a successful implementation and an excellent ongoing relationship.”
John-Paul Williams, Aurigny’s Group Technical Director, commented: “We have gone through a very thorough selection process with over 10 software options presented and reviewed. We have selected OASES as it will provide all the functionality we require now and in the future. It is an established system used by many similar airlines to us in Europe, who when asked provided us with positive feedback on the implementation and use of OASES.”
The global OASES community currently consists of more than 130 aviation operations in over 55 different countries, including national and regional carriers, business aviation and charter operators, cargo specialists, leasing companies, MROs and specialist rotable stockists.
