SWISS Converts 10 Firm Bombardier CS100 to Larger CS300 Aircraft

  • Addition of the CS300 aircraft to SWISS' fleet showcases confidence in the C Series family of aircraft

International Paris Air Show - Bombardier announced today that launch operator SWISS has converted 10 of its 30 firm-ordered CS100 aircraft to the larger CS300 aircraft. The original purchase agreement for 30 CS100 aircraft was signed by Deutsche Lufthansa AG on SWISS' behalf and announced in 2009.

"With its size and its low operating costs, the CS300 aircraft ideally complements the CS100 aircraft and the rest of our European fleet," said Harry Hohmeister, Chief Executive Officer, SWISS. "With both versions of the new C Series family of aircraft in our ranks, we can be highly flexible in tailoring capacity to demand on our European routes."

"We congratulate SWISS on its decision to add the larger CS300 aircraft to its fleet," said Fred Cromer, President, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft. "This addition exemplifies the benefits of operating a family of aircraft -- the CS100 aircraft provides the extraordinary field performance needed for operations at some very challenging airports, while the CS300 aircraft provides outstanding economics."
