Bombardier C Series Aircraft Route-proving Takes Off in Europe



Bombardier-CSeries

After months of preparing, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft announced that they have finally begun testing new European flight routes using a specially outfitted CS100 aircraft. Bombardier will be conducting these proving exercises through Swiss International Air Lines’ (SWISS) facility located in Zurich. This base will serve as a sort of central hub for testing connecting flights to a number of different Eastern and Central European cities including Brussels, Vienna, and Warsaw. SWISS will receive their initial CS100 delivery within the next few months, and these proving exercises are essential towards examining the CS100s capabilities. Each exercise will be conducted by replicating exact speeds, altitudes, and operations found within a typical SWISS commercial flight.

As the launch customer and the first airline that will operate the CS100 aircraft, the European route- proving program is very important to us and will provide a real indication of how the aircraft will operate in our network when we take delivery of our first CS100 aircraft in the next few months," said Peter Wojahn, Chief Technical Officer, Swiss International Air Lines.

The C-Series aircraft occupies a unique sector within the Aerospace market in that it focuses solely upon mid-sized passenger aircraft ranging from only 100 to 150 seats. Through advanced materials and avionics development, Bombardier has managed to create a completely original aircraft that saves customers over $10 million for each one purchased. Once the initial CS100s are delivered to SWISS, Bombardier will likely receive even more interest in their C-Series. Look for even more C-Series aircraft in the years to come.
