La Jolla, CA, USA - May 10, 2007 - Miro Technologies, a leading provider of aviation maintenance and logistics software, announced today that SAS Braathens, Norway's largest scheduled airline operator, has selected the AuRA product suite to support aircraft maintenance and engineering management.
The scope of the AuRA program will include engineering, planning and line maintenance for the entire SAS Braathens fleet. AuRA will be rolled out throughout the SAS Braathens system. The implementation will start immediately.
"We selected AuRA because of its airline industry specific focus and comprehensive functionality," said Terje Helgaland, Assistant Director Engineering for SAS Braathens. "The ability to integrate a modern COTS system such as AuRA into our legacy systems was also key," he continued.
"We are delighted that SAS Braathens has decided to move forward with Miro and the AuRA system," said Vincent Monteparte, President & CEO of Miro Technologies, Inc., "and we look forward to a successful implementation for our newest AuRA customer."
Miro previously implemented AuRA for Scandinavian Airlines in Stockholm, with the final SAS aircraft coming on line in November 2006. Miro and SAS Technical Services (STS) subsequently implemented AuRA at Air Maintenance Estonia (AME), a subsidiary of STS based in Tallinn, Estonia.
