JetSMART Airlines, a South American ultra-low-cost carrier created by US private investment fund Indigo Partners, is now live with AMOS Airline edition.
As an ultra-low-cost company JetSMART has outsourced most of its operations (including CAMO and maintenance) as part of its ULC strategy. To fulfil its business strategy of ultra-low-cost, AMOS has been recognised as an all-round solution that will support JetSMART to optimise its costs while keeping the rapidly growing fleet of 23 new aircraft, composed of A320-neos and -ceos, at the highest safety standards. Although the main base of operation is in Chile, the airlines also has operations in Argentina and in Peru. A key benefit for JetSMART is the multi-operator maintenance programme capabilities of AMOS, as all three operators access the same database, while this one source of data will facilitate the communication and collaboration of the three different operators.
The initial go-live targeted the Peru operations, followed with Argentina’s and Chile’s operation running in AMOS from the end of February and beginning of March respectively. After a kick-off in June 2022, the project team focused on core business processes allowing JetSMART to manage its planning, maintenance, engineering and procurement needs in AMOS after a seven-month implementation project.
Thanks to major efforts from the JetSMART staff in close cooperation with the Aircraft Engineering Services team from Lufthansa Technik, which after go-live took over CAMO services for JetSMART, Swiss-AS managed to migrate the full set of data that will allow JetSMART to smoothly operate AMOS.
As part of the AMOS Airline Edition, core APIs like Transfer Executed Flights and Transfer Workorder have already been implemented, allowing AMOS to receive flights and export deferred items to JetSMART systems and dashboards. With AMOS, JetSMART now owns and controls its data and can grow the interoperability of AMOS within the ecosystem of JetSMART. The complete data integration provided by AMOS allows JetSMART to have a complete, up-to-date, and real time forecast of maintenance events.
AMOSmobile/EXEC will also be part of the project scope for future implementations following GoLive, allowing JetSMART to save on costs and paper thanks to optimised mobile processes.
In addition to the standard set-up, JetSMART has opted for Swiss-AS providing cloud hosting services with a noVPN solution. JetSMART is the very first customer of Swiss-AS to successfully go live with a noVPN solution, allowing JetSMART AMOS users to connect to AMOS from anywhere with a reverse Proxy. This is part of a hybrid solution, in which it also has the possibility of connecting to their cloud with a VPN as a backup.
