Bombardier Aerospace has announced that a major network carrier – which currently wishes to remain unidentified – will be the first operator to take delivery of the first CSeries aircraft, having signed a firm order for 10 CS100s with options on an additional six.
"We are delighted to add yet another major network carrier to our customers for the CSeries aircraft, and to announce this customer will be the first operator in the CSeries aircraft programme,” said Gary Scott, president, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft. “Our customer is keenly aware of the competitive advantage that will come with being the very first operator of Bombardier’s all-new, technologically advanced CSeries aircraft.”
“This firm order is the third one announced this month, and is testament to the growing appeal and momentum for CSeries aircraft,” added Scott.
