Swiss International Air Lines has selected Bombardier’s Smart Parts Program to provide component support for the it’s incoming fleet of 30 C Series airliners.  Under the terms of the ten-year agreement the Canadian manufacturer will provide the Swiss carrier with comprehensive component maintenance, repair and overhaul services, access to a strategically located spare part exchange pool and an on-site inventory based at the airline’s main hub in Zurich.  Swiss is the launch operator for the C Series, with the first CS100 aircraft scheduled to be delivered by Bombardier in June.

Peter Wojahn, Chief Technical Officer, Swiss International Air Lines commented: “As we approach entry-into-service with our CS100, we have selected Bombardier as our component services supplier – strengthening our relationship even further.  The Smart Parts Program will guarantee part availability and provide is with a cost-effective solution to our component maintenance and spare part requirements.  This will enable us to secure a successful entry into service and to operate our fleet of C Series aircraft to its full potential, while reducing maintenance-related costs and our own investment into spare components.”
