Swiss to Fly CS100 First

Aircraft manufacturer Bombardier has confirmed that Swiss International Air Lines will be the first airline to fly the new CSeries twinjet, when the airline takes delivery of its first jet during the first half of 2016.

Bombardier says they are on schedule for certification of the CS100 to be completed towards the close of this year. However we wont have long to wait to view the new aircraft as Bombardier are planning on exhibiting the plane at Paris Air Show in June. 

The Lufthansa Group, which owns Swiss has ordered 30 CSeries aircraft “We are looking forward to being both the launch customer and the first airline that will operate the CS100.”  says Swiss chief executive Harry Hohmeister, confirming the aircraft is“very much in line with our performance expectations”,
