Bombardier Commercial Aircraft announced today its presence at the 51st International Paris Air Show by confirming that it will provide an exciting display in-flight and on the ground of its entire family of commercial aircraft. The line-up will be led by CS100 and CS300 airliners, both models in the all-new CSeries family of aircraft.
“Bombardier arrives at the Paris Air Show at a very exciting time as we debut our CSeries family of aircraft,” said Fred Cromer, President, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft. “We are proud to present the first all-new designed, single-aisle aircraft that the industry has seen in over 25 years. Bombardier’s ingenuity and investment in both our business and customer relationships will be available for everyone to witness at this air show.”
The CS300 aircraft will visit Bombardier’s Belfast facility in Northern Ireland on June 19, where Bombardier’s employees and partners eagerly await the arrival of the first CS300 aircraft – it will be the first time the CSeries aircraft and its Belfast-produced wing will fly on site. Following its appearance at the show, Bombardier will demonstrate the CS100 aircraft in Zurich to launch customer, SWISS, with whom it is working very closely to ensure a successful entry into service.
The four aircraft from Bombardier Commercial Aircraft’s portfolio of industry-leading products being featured on static display include the technologically advanced Q400 NextGen turboprop and the CRJ1000 NextGen jet, the most recent addition to the world’s most successful regional aircraft program. In addition, guests will have the opportunity to witness and experience first-hand the all-new CS100 and CS300 commercial aircraft. All four aircraft will be co-located on static display and the CS300 aircraft will be the highlight of the Paris Air Show flight display.
The International Paris Air Show runs from Monday, June 15, to Thursday, June 18, for trade visitors and Friday, June 19, to Sunday, June 21, for public visitors. The Bombardier chalet, adjacent to the aircraft static display and pavilion is located at #284.
