Bombardier's CS100 Aircraft Kicks Off Worldwide Demo Tours

First Stop In The Kingdom Of Bahrain

The recently-certified Bombardier CS100 aircraft in the livery of first operator SWISS has kicked off a series of demonstration tours with the first stop in Manama, in the Kingdom of Bahrain.

In addition to stops in the Middle East, the aircraft – which is en route to the Singapore Airshow 2016 - is expected to make stops in a number of Asia-Pacific countries, as well as stops in Africa and Europe following its static presentation at Changi Airport in Singapore from February 15-18.

“Following the CS100 aircraft’s certification and the latest updates from the C Series program, we have received a tremendous amount of interest from airlines and stakeholders worldwide -- all curious to see the only 100 per cent-new, single-aisle aircraft entering the market in close to three decades,” said Colin Bole, Senior Vice President, Commercial, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft. “Kicking off this round of demonstration tours in the Gulf region will showcase to committed customers like Gulf Air, Iraqi Airways, SaudiGulf and Falcon Aviation how well-suited the CS100 aircraft is for their operations and the region.  In fact, with its unique operational flexibility, low operating costs, superior passenger comfort and unmatched environmental scorecard, the C Series aircraft offers many advantages for airlines across the world.”

In December 2015, Bombardier announced that the CS100 aircraft received its Transport Canada Type Certification. Bombardier’s CS300 aircraft, the larger model, is on track to obtain its Type Certificate approximately mid-year 2016 as planned. The CS100 aircraft will be delivered and enter service with first operator Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS) in Q2 2016.
