Bombardier has delivered the sixth CS100 aircraft, the smaller variant game-changing C Series platform, to Swiss. Bombardier have now delivered a total of eight C Series aircraft; six CS100 to SWISS and two CS300 to airBaltic.

"We are very proud to have delivered another C Series to Swiss today and to continue building on the strong momentum generated by the successful entry into service of the C Series aircraft in 2016," said Fred Cromer, President of Bombardier Commercial Aircraft. "We continue to ramp up production on the C Series in 2017, and as per our plan, the cadence of deliveries will increase in the second half of the year."

The C Series continue to demonstrate strong operational performance with both SWISS and airBaltic and have now accumulated over 5,500 flights.

"The C Series airliners have had very strong in-service performance to date," said Rob Dewar, Vice President, C Series Program, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft. "The PW1500 powering the C Series is demonstrating strong operational performance and I am confident that the aircraft will continue exceeding customer and passenger expectations."
