Arik Air signs new OASES user deal with Commsoft

Commsoft, a world leader in aviation engineering and maintenance systems, is delighted to announce that it has added the Nigerian airline, Arik Air, to its growing list of OASES users in a five year, 30 concurrent users deal.

The airline will be using OASES to support the development of its internal CAMO capabilities and is likely to appoint an OASES-experienced third party contractor as an implementation partner to assist with training and other aspects of process development. The initial focus will be on Arik Air’s two Airbus A330-200s, but this will be expanded to incorporate the rest of the airline’s fleet, including Boeing 737-800s and 737-700s, and Bombardier CRJ-900s and Dash 8 Q400s.

Arik Air also has ambitious plans to expand its fleet further with a number of new generation aircraft. OASES, designed to combine ease of use with a technical sophistication that allows for the full integration of all maintenance and engineering functions, is structured in a modular format. Arik Air has selected the Core, Airworthiness, Planning, Production, Materials and Warranty modules which will run on a standalone dual server platform.

Nick Godwin, MD of Commsoft, commented: “We are delighted that Arik Air, West Africa’s leading airline, has chosen OASES for the development of their internal CAMO operation, particularly given their ambitious plans to expand the airline’s fleet. It’s also gratifying to see the wider OASES user community involved in providing implementation support.” 

Allan Fullilove, Technical Director of Arik Air, added: “Having utilised OASES with another airline many years ago, I am impressed at the latest major improvements developed by Commsoft. I believe OASES will offer major value benefits at Arik Air as we develop our technical capabilities.”
