Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS) have added the Bombardier CSeries aircraft to its fleet. In doing so, SWISS was the first airline in the world to operate the new Bombardier CSeries. The innovative short- and medium-haul twinjet sets new benchmarks in inflight comfort, operating economics and environmental terms, including a 50% noise reduction which will particularly benefit local airport residents.
CSeries in the UK
Avro RJ100 will gradually be switched to CSeries operation as the new twinjets arrive. Since 1st June 2017, the new CSeries joined the fleet on the Heathrow – Geneva route.
50% less noise
SWISS will be the first operator in the world of the CSeries, Bombardier’s entirely newly-developed short- and medium-haul aircraft. With its state-of-the-art engine, systems and materials technology, the CSeries sets new benchmarks in inflight comfort, operating economics and environmental terms. The new twinjet is only about half as loud as comparable aircraft to the human ear. It also consumes up to 25% less fuel and, as a result, will reduce SWISS’s annual carbon dioxide emissions by some 90,000 tonnes.
