Air Baltic is set to exploit the CS300’s range capability by putting the type on to new medium-haul routes from Riga, the first of which is Abu Dhabi from October 2017.
Air Baltic’s first CS300 YL-CSA (c/n 55003) arriving at its Riga base on delivery. This variant has 3,300nm (6,112km) range.
Swiss has used its CS100s to replace its Avro RJs on its European short-haul network. Around 300 of its pilots will be trained on the aircraft.
Two airlines, Swiss and Air Baltic, have so far put the C Series into service. Korean Air is set to become the third operator later this summer.
