Somon Air signs five-year contract to use OASES MRO IT system

Somon Air, a private airline based in Dushanbe, Tajikistan, has selected OASES, the MRO IT system from engineering and maintenance systems expert Commsoft, for its airline CAMO activities. OASES will control the airline’s six-strong fleet of Boeing 737 ‘Classic’ and NG aircraft.

The fast-growing airline has signed a 10 concurrent users, five-year contract with Commsoft, with implementation and set-up services provided by FL Technics scheduled to start straight away. FL Technics will use OASES to manage the Continuing Airworthiness of Somon Air’s fleet.  The contract covers three modules: Core, Airworthiness and Planning. It also allows the airline access to Commsoft’s private cloud to manage its OASES operations.

Robert Bryant, Engineering and Maintenance Director for Somon Air, said: “The partnership brings together the Aviation Engineering systems expertise of Commsoft with the Continuing Airworthiness management capability of FL Technics. The purpose of the partnership is to elevate Somon Air to self- perform all Continuing Airworthiness functions over the next two years using a cloud based OASES system controlled from Dushanbe. Following on from the acquisition of Part 145 accreditation, this is a further step in the development of the airline and the Aviation population of Tajikistan.’’

Somon Air is the first private airline in Tajikistan with an office headquartered in Dushanbe.

Somon Air currently operates a number of international services, linking the Tajikistani cities of Dushanbe and Khujand to Russian cities including Moscow, St Petersburg, Krasnoyarsk, Orenburg and Ekaterinburg.

The current fleet is composed of six aircraft: two 737-300s; two 737-800s and two 737-900ERs. One of these aircraft is already under FL Technics CAMO control in OASES, while the remaining fleet will be transferred progressively from a Turkish CAMO organisation.
