The C Series is 100% new, from nose to tail. Yet this entirely purpose-built aircraft has been made possible thanks to a long line of industry-shaping aircraft in the Bombardier family. The C Series, which incorporates decades of experience in the aviation industry, is the natural progression and exciting future of Bombardier’s commercial aircraft. Composed of the CS100 and the larger CS300, the C Series family represents the fusion of performance and technology. The result is two aircraft that deliver a 15% cash operating cost advantage and a 20% fuel burn advantage, making this family the ideal candidate for longer, thinner routes. This means airlines can connect far-flung points on continents or sectors that were previously not profitable or possible. This flexibility extends to operations.
Together, the CS100 and the CS300 have over 95% parts commonality as well as the same type rating. The ground-breaking Pratt & Whitney PurePower PW1500G, combined with advanced aerodynamics, delivers reduced fuel burn, noise and emissions, making the C Series a community minded aircraft. By focusing on the 100- to 150-seat market segment, Bombardier has built the C Series aircraft with a specific design point in mind. The focus on this segment drives the aircraft’s phenomenal economic proposition and performance, opening up new opportunities and new ideas for single-aisle operations.
