Business Traveller - - UPFRONT -

AIR­CRAFT MAN­U­FAC­TURER BOM­BARDIER’S CS100 jet has been granted “steep ap­proval cer­ti­fi­ca­tion” from Trans­port Canada and the EASA (Euro­pean Avi­a­tion Safety Agency), clear­ing it for use at Lon­don City air­port (LCY).

In March, the CS100 un­der­took a num­ber of test flights at LCY, cul­mi­nat­ing in the air­craft fly­ing non­stop to New York (al­beit with a re­duced weight). Lon­don City chief ex­ec­u­tive De­clan Col­lier said: “It’s fan­tas­tic news that one of the qui­etest and most fuel-ef­fi­cient air­craft in its class has been granted reg­u­la­tory ap­proval. It pro­vides op­por­tu­ni­ties for non­stop ser­vices to des­ti­na­tions in­clud­ing the US East Coast, Rus­sia, West Africa and the Mid­dle East.”

Swiss is the only Euro­pean op­er­a­tor of the CS100, of­fer­ing 125 seats in a two-class lay­out con­fig­ured 2-3.
