Swiss International Air Lines has released the entry-into-service programme for its incoming Bombardier C Series.  The first CS100 is due to join the Zürich-based carrier in late June and will make its commercial debut on July 15, operating flight LX 638 to Paris/Charles de Gaulle.  The airline revealed Manchester, Prague and Budapest will be among the initial destinations served by the new jet, followed by Warsaw and Brussels – from late August – and Nice, Stuttgart, Hanover, Milan, Florence and Bucharest in September.

According to Swiss, the new type – which will ultimately replace its outgoing fleet of BAE Systems Avro RJ100s – will set new benchmarks in in-flight comfort, operating economics and environmental factors.  The aircraft will also create 150 new jobs at the airline.
