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.
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.
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.
