Start-up relies on proven AMOS software system

Swiss-AS is pleased to announce that AMOS has been selected by the Italian start-up airline Ernest Airlines. The low-cost carrier is in the fortunate position that some staff members are already familiar with AMOS – a good basis for the envisaged swift implementation and quick project start.
Ernest Airlines relies on a Swiss-AS “care-free package”, a combination of the proven AMOS Operation Services (= AOS, covering the application and database administration) and hosting.
“It is a pleasure for us to accompany Ernest Airlines right from the beginning of this adventure to establish a new airline and to support its growth in future,” states Ronald Schaeuffele, CEO of Swiss-AS.
Despite the fact that national flag carriers and some of the biggest MRO providers worldwide have recently chosen AMOS, Swiss-AS is keen to emphasise that AMOS is also designed to fully meet the requirements of small organisations. To accommodate the needs of start-ups and smaller airlines on tight budgets, Swiss-AS also supports AMOS implementations on the open-source database PostgreSQL.
