CSALP to become Airbus Canada Limited Partnership

March 15, 2019  By Wings Staff

C Series Aircraft Limited Partnership, which oversees the Airbus A220 program, is changing its official name to Airbus Canada Limited Partnership.
The new name reflects the majority interest of Airbus in the limited partnership since July 1, 2018. The organisation will adopt the Airbus logo as its single visual identity.

“The new name is the logical next step after the aircraft was rebranded as the Airbus A220 on July 10th 2018, further strengthening customer confidence in the A220 as a full member of the Airbus aircraft family,” said Philippe Balducchi, CEO of the entity and Airbus head of country, Canada.

Over the course of the coming months, Airbus explains the new name will be formally adopted and applied to the existing documentation, materials and branded items. The Airbus and Bombardier logos will continue to be displayed side-by-side on the building exteriors in Mirabel, explains Airbus, reflecting production activities on the site for both the Airbus A220 and Bombardier CRJ aircraft families.
