SWISS is the launching customer and first operator of the new short- and medium-haul C Series, and has been closely involved in its development from scratch by manufacturer Bombardier.
With its state-of-the-art technologies, the C Series sets new benchmarks in terms of its inflight comfort, operating economics and environmental credentials: it consumes up to 25% less fuel and is half as loud to the human ear as comparable aircraft types. Large windows allow plenty of daylight into the cabin, which provides a new sense of space. The new overhead compartments allow you to easily and quickly stow away your hand baggage. The first of its 30 jets on order – which are a combination of CS100s and the larger CS300 – will gradually replace the present SWISS Avro RJ100 fleet between now and mid-2017.
Since mid-July 2016 the new SWISS CS100 flies to selected European destinations, including Budapest, Prague, Warsaw, Bucharest, Paris, Milan and Hanover. More and more destinations currently served with the Avro RJ100 will gradually be switched to C Series operation as the new twinjets arrive.
