Implementation already started in Q1 2017

Swiss-AS and its Miami based AMOS Business Unit within Lufthansa Systems are delighted to announce the signing of AMOS contracts with Kalitta Air after a long MRO software evaluation process. “It is an honour for us to implement AMOS at Kalitta Air, an established cargo airline and a significant MRO provider in the USA,” states Ronald Schaeuffele, CEO of Swiss-AS. With Kalitta Air performing in-house base maintenance activities at a large scale, this newly acquired customer will profit from complex functions being currently added to AMOS, such as graphical hangar planning, graphical monitoring of maintenance groundtimes, production and finance control dashboards.

No major software customisations foreseen

Kalitta Air and Swiss-AS will team up to streamline the US carrier’s processes in accordance with industry’s best practice to bring a high level of efficiency to their business and strengthen their competitive edge. The project team foresees an implementation without major software customisations – which is an excellent philosophy to ensure a swift implementation timeline. By replacing a scattered landscape of different maintenance applications by the single application AMOS, Kalitta Air can expect significant improvements in the cross-departmental communication, data quality and planning reliability.
