CSeries arrives at Paris

With the Paris Air Show starting today (15 June 2015)  Bombardier announced yesterday that its new CSeries regional airliner, making its public debut, was exceeding original targets.  The aircraft was also on track to meet noise performance criteria, making it the quietest commercial jet in production.

The C Series aircraft's maximum range has been confirmed to be up to 3,300 NM (6,112 km), some 350 NM (648 km) more than originally targeted. The aircraft is delivering more than a 20% fuel burn advantage compared to in-production aircraft, and a greater than 10% advantage compared to re-engined aircraft.

"The C Series performance is better than advertised - while offering a best-in-class cabin, and carrying up to 15 passengers more than initially promised. This will provide increased profitability and market access for operators, along with convenience and comfort for passengers," said Fred Cromer, President, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft.

Both the CS100 (133 seats maximum) and CS300 (160 seats) are on display.  http://news.commercialaircraft.bombardier.com/c-series
