On March 23, 2016, there was an article released by Aviation Tribune that describes about how there has been another huge accomplishment by completing the CS100 aircraft’s European route. This is deemed as a success to Bombardier Commercial Aircraft.
To get more information on this program, the aircraft has over 30 city pair flights all throughout Europe and its cities over a span of three weeks.
There was an event in Zurich on the 23rd of March which gives even more details about how Bombardier is getting ready to deliver the first CS100 aircraft in the month of June.
Here is what Peter Wojahn, the Chief Technical Officer of Swiss International Air Lines has to say about this.
Considering that Bombardier inserted the CS100 aircraft into a number of the network operations we currently service, the route-proving program provided us with a real indication of how the C Series will operate in our route system when we take delivery of our first CS100 aircraft in June. As the launch customer and the first airline to operate the C Series aircraft, we are very pleased and impressed with the results. It was equally exciting to see these first set of flights operating from our home-base in Zurich.
Rob Dewar, the vice president of the Bombardier Commercial Aircraft also has a few words to add with this newly improved aircraft with a market for 100 to 150 seat arrangements .
We’re also delighted that the flying public in Europe, who will ultimately be among the first in the world to fly aboard the aircraft, got a chance to see it operating in prime cities over the past few weeks, as we took the opportunity to show the aircraft to a few European airlines. They were excited to see the first all-new airliner built for the 100- to 150-seat market in close to three decades landing at their airports for the very first time.
