In an impactful step towards transforming maintenance and engineering operations, Swiss-AS proudly announces flyadeal's selection of AMOS Airline Edition as its premier maintenance and engineering software solution. The selection of AMOS marks a significant milestone for flyadeal, setting new standards for efficiency and innovation. AMOS serves the airline as a central hub for managing maintenance operations, leveraging data-driven insights to optimize efficiency, ensure compliance, and drive innovation in aircraft maintenance practices.

flyadeal, Saudi Arabia’s leading low-cost airline based in Jeddah with a model for simplicity and affordability, has entrusted Swiss-AS with the pivotal task of enhancing its maintenance operations. By selecting one solution from Lufthansa Technik’s Digital Tech Ops Ecosytem – the AMOS Airline Edition software package – flyadeal is well-positioned to attain operational excellence and boost productivity with the digitalization of its Technical Operations.

Facing the challenges of managing a growing fleet of A320neo and A320ceo aircraft, flyadeal sought to transition from traditional maintenance management systems to a solution that would grant them greater control over their data. The airline needed a comprehensive platform capable of seamlessly handling line/light and base maintenance operations while providing robust support for CAMO processes and data migration. 

flyadeal and LHT Digital Tech Ops Ecosystem
In May 2023, Swiss-AS, in collaboration with Lufthansa Technik’s Aircraft Engineering Services for CAMO processes, SCAMT (Subcontracted Continuing Airworthiness Management Tasks) services, and data migration, embarked on a transformative journey with flyadeal to implement AMOS. This collaborative effort culminated in a successful go-live in March 2024, showcasing the dedication and expertise of all involved.

“flyadeal’s selection of AMOS highlights the strength of the Lufthansa Technik’s Tech Ops Ecosystem and continues to strengthen Swiss-AS’s position as the market leader in the Middle East region. This unique collaboration marks a significant step for flyadeal with the aim of achieving operational excellence and embracing future digitalisation, and we are delighted to be part of this transformative journey,” stated Claudia Weiss-Giessler, Swiss-AS Chief Commercial Officer.

Ahmed Bakadam, flyadeal Director of Maintenance and Engineering, said: “This agreement with Swiss-AS is yet another step in flyadeal’s drive to harness technology across our business, adopting the latest software which automates and centralises operations to ensure greater efficiencies with of course keeping safety as our topmost priority. We have a commitment to the highest operational standards for maintenance of our aircraft which involves the optimisation of data and management systems, very much in line with flyadeal’s strategic mandate of digitalisation.”

flyadeal also embraced AMOScloud – a solution offering cloud hosting, an advanced web client, and a self-service platform. This innovative approach not only streamlines operations but also establishes a new standard for optimisation in the industry.

With the seamless integration and implementation of AMOS as its maintenance and engineering software solution, flyadeal has unlocked a myriad of benefits, including: enhanced control over data and processes, improved cost structure, baseline for digitalisation efforts, providing a scalable platform for ongoing improvement and innovation.

The collaboration between Swiss-AS and Lufthansa Technik’s Aircraft Engineering Services, exemplifies the power of the Digital Tech Ops Ecosystem in driving industry-wide innovations. With its flyadeal partnership Swiss-AS continues to solidify its position as the preferred choice for maintenance and engineering software in KSA.

Swiss-AS congratulates flyadeal on this milestone achievement and looks forward to continued success in this partnership.
