A CS300 Shimmers in Korean Air Colours After Paint Job

On Thursday, Canadian aircraft manufacturer Bombardier, proudly unveiled the first CS300 aircraft freshly painted in Korean Air’s colors as it rolled out of the paint shop in Mirabel, Canada. 

The first CS300 is scheduled to be delivered this autumn, enabling Korean Air to be the very first airline to operate the C Series in Asia.

“Seeing a C Series aircraft in brand new colors is always a special moment for us and our customers,” said Rob Dewar, Vice President, C Series Aircraft Program, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft. “Painting an airplane is a complex artistic chemical process that gives the final visual character to this majestic aircraft, granting airlines their first feeling of pride and ownership when they see the aircraft wearing their brand colors for the first time.”

After a few days of  meticulous care in Bombardier's paint shop the new aircraft now wears the shimmering blue, red and grey colours of Korean Air's livery.  “We are very proud to have Korean Air as the C Series launch operator in Asia, as they bring very strong technical and operational capabilities to the program,” added Rob Dewar.

The aircraft is now undergoing the last few weeks of final assembly and test flights before it makes the journey to Seoul where the impressive sleek aircraft will be based.
