AJW Aviation signs ground-breaking PBH contract with start-up Qingdao Airlines

In partnership with CASC (China Aviation Supplies Corporation) in Beijing, AJW Aviation has signed a six year contract to provide power-by-the-hour support to Qingdao Airlines’ fleet of A320 aircraft.

Established by the Nashan Group, the Qingdao Municipal Government and Shandong Airlines, Qingdao Airlines launched operations earlier this year providing domestic services to destinations across China. The airline has announced future orders for a total of 23 A320 family aircraft, including five A320ceos and 18 A320neos, with the first delivery expected in 2018, and the fleet growing to over 50 aircraft in the next six years.

This is the first co-operative project between AJW and CASC.

AirExplore signs five-year deal with Commsoft for use of OASES

Commsoft, aviation engineering and maintenance system provider, has announced that AirExplore, based in Bratislava, Slovakia, has signed a five-year contract for the use of OASES.

Commsoft’s flagship product, OASES is a MRO IT system which offers an industry-leading technical sophistication whilst being intuitively user-friendly. AirExplore will be using OASES to support its four Boeing 737-400s and a Boeing 737-800 which provide charter flights for holiday companies as well as additional capacity for other airlines on both short and long-term contracts.

To allow for scalability, OASES is structured in a modular format and AirExplore has selected all of the following modules: Core, Airworthiness, Planning, Production, Materials, Line Maintenance Control and Warranty.

AirExplore has also opted to run OASES on standalone servers which are currently being procured and the implementation of the system is scheduled for late 2014/early 2015.
