CSeries arrives at London City

A Bombardier CSeries 100 in full SWISS regalia is expected to take part in certification trials at London City Airport next Monday (17 July) and go into service with a Zurich inaugural on Tuesday 8 August (LX 466/467). It departs LCY at 18:25.

SWISS, a great supporter of London City Airport since the days of its predecessor Crossair, has 30 CSeries on order with ten delivered (nine of the 100 model and a single 300 series).

With 125 seats, the new two-class aircraft will have the largest capacity of any plane at the airport. SWISS offers free beverage and meal service on all of its flights.

CSeries aircraft will be introduced in the coming years gradually, replacing the very successful Avro RJ100.  

Regular SWISS travellers will be delighted to see the same layout, 2+3, similar 30/32in pitch, plus wider (18in) and much more comfortable seats, which also slightly recline.

Innovations include a huge overhead storage bin, ideal for operations where the majority of customers will have carry-on luggage, and extra-large windows measuring 11inx16in, positioned high on the sidewall to provide an optimal viewing angle and natural light.
