Company History

A history of success

The history of AMOS goes back to the year 1989 when Crossair (predecessor of Swiss International Air Lines) decided to develop its own MRO software which laid the foundation for AMOS.

In the beginning the brand name AMOS stood for Airline Maintenance & Operational Systems, as the initial idea was to develop an in-house maintenance as well as operations software. In 1992 the decision was taken to focus exclusively on maintenance - but to keep the name AMOS.

In 2004, the company Swiss AviationSoftware was founded, a spin-off from Swiss International Air Lines. The newly built company was given the ideal set-up to develop its own strengths as an MRO software provider in this highly specialised niche market while still being embedded in a strong and successful aviation context.

To continue its story of success, Swiss-AS can draw on decades of experience as well as on a large customer community which contributes to the longevity and competitiveness of the product.
