Cyprus-based airline Orion purchases OASES IT system

Commsoft, a world leader in aviation engineering and maintenance systems, announced that its industry-leading MRO IT system, OASES, has been selected by new Cyprus-based Orion Airways to support a fleet of Boeing 737-300 and 800 aircraft.

Orion is Commsoft’s first customer in Cyprus and brings the total number of countries in which OASES is being used to 43.

A ‘best-of-breed’ system, OASES offers a highly impressive level of technical sophistication whilst being intuitively user-friendly. To allow for scalability, the system is structured in a modular format and Orion has selected the Core, Airworthiness, Planning, Materials, Warranty and Line Maintenance modules. The OASES system for five concurrent users will be hosted on Commsoft’s OASES Private Cloud service.

Orion Airways plans to start operations in September 2016 and will be the first Cypriot carrier to offer low-cost charter and scheduled flights to major European destinations as well as Israel, providing links with the wider Middle East.

Nick Godwin, Commsoft Managing Director, commented: “We’re delighted that Orion Airways, an important new start-up airline, has chosen OASES to support its planned operations. Orion is the seventh new customer to join the continually growing OASES family this year. The contract was won in a competitive bid process, in yet another vote of confidence in Commsoft’s partnership approach to its family of customers, underpinned by the technological, operational and commercial benefits that the OASES system delivers.”

Thanassis Kokkotas, Chief Executive Officer of Orion Airways commented: “Orion Airways has aggressive plans for expansion with three 737-800s expected this year and a total fleet of eight aircraft expected by the end of 2017. In selecting Commsoft, we have chosen a collaborative partner to jointly progress these ambitious technical plans.”
