Bombardier’s CSeries aircrafts are designed for the growing 100 to 149 seat market and combine advanced materials, leading-edge technology and methods to meet commercial airline expectations for 2013 forward. Offering a 15 per cent cash operating cost advantage and a 20 per cent fuel burn advantage, the CSeries greatly reduced noise and emissions. This paired with the superior operational flexibility, exceptional airfield performance and range of 5,463 km makes the aircraft exceptionally unique. Seating, inside the aircraft, offers passengers a three plus two, wide body style seating with a single aisle.

The CS100 aircraft is expected to enter service in 2013 while the CS300 in 2014.

“With its order for CSeries aircraft, Braathens Aviation continues to illustrate its deep commitment to its customers and to the community in which it operates,” said Gary R. Scott, President, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft. “Braathens Aviation’s visionary leaders have chosen the CSeries aircraft’s game-changing technologies and 21st century design to help them deliver on their commitments, and we at Bombardier appreciate their confidence.”
