SWISS to launch Bombardier CS100 operations in July

Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS) is to put its first Bombardier C Series aircraft – a CS100 – into service on 15 July. In doing so, SWISS will be the first airline in the world to operate the new Bombardier C Series.

Bombardier claims the short- and medium-haul twinjet sets new benchmarks for inflight comfort, operating economics and environmental terms, including a 50% noise reduction which will particularly benefit local airport residents. The arrival of the C Series will also create 150 new jobs at SWISS.

SWISS expects to take delivery of its first Bombardier C Series aircraft – a CS100 – as scheduled at the end of June. On Friday 15 July, the aircraft will take off from Zurich at 12:30 on its first commercial flight: LX 638 to Paris (Charles de Gaulle). The commencement of scheduled operations with the new Bombardier twinjet will mark a further milestone in SWISS history, following the successful service entry of the Boeing 777-300ER.

In addition to Paris (Charles de Gaulle), Manchester, Prague and Budapest will also be among the first SWISS destinations to receive Bombardier CS100 service. They will be followed by Warsaw and Brussels at the end of August, and by Nice, Stuttgart, Hanover, Milan, Florence and Bucharest in September. The Zurich-London City route is expected to have C Series service from the first quarter of 2017.
