Albastar has chosen to support its airline operations with OASES, Commsoft’s MRO IT system. Albastar is a privately-owned Spanish airline, founded in 2010 by Italian and British entrepreneurs from the tourism and transport sectors to provide on-demand flight services in collaboration with major Spanish, Italian and other European tour operators. Based in Palma de Mallorca, Albastar operates mainly charter flights from its principal basis of Palma de Mallorca, Milan Malpensa and Milan Bergamo as well as seasonal services from Lourdes. The fleet to be supported by OASES will initially include four Boeing 737-800 aircraft.
OASES is structured in a modular format to provide maximum flexibility and scalability and Albastar has opted for the core, airworthiness, materials, planning and production modules with an option to add the Line Maintenance Control module at a later date. All modules will be accessed through Commsoft’s Private Cloud service, avoiding any need for the airline to invest in new hardware.
Commsoft also signed a contract with the recently launched Emirates Flight Training Academy (‘EFTA’), located at custom-built premises at Al Maktoum International Airport in Dubai for OASES. OASES has been supporting the flight training academy which began operations in Dubai South in November 2017. The contract covers five key modules of the OASES system: core, airworthiness, planning, inventory and production. These have been implemented on Commsoft’s private cloud for optimum security and customer care.
EFTA recently received its CAR M Subpart G continuing airworthiness management organization and CAR 145 maintenance organisation approvals (ref CAMO/0007/18 & UAE.145.0073) from the UAE General Civil Aviation Authority which allows EFTA to manage and carry out the maintenance on the aircrafts in-house.
Polish MRO organisation, WZL2 (Wojskowe Zakłady Lotnicze Nr 2 S.A.), has also chosen OASES. WZL2 is now taking civil aviation customers with Bombardier Q400, ATR 42 and ATR72 turboprop airliners, Embraer E-Jet airliners and ultimately Boeing 737NG aircraft.
WZL2 has selected the core, airworthiness, planning, materials, production, commercial and warranty modules which will be implemented initially through Commsoft’s Private Cloud service.
“We have signed multiple new OASES contracts in 2018 and we look forward to ensuring successful implementations for all,” says Nick Godwin, managing director, Commsoft.
