12:36 - July 14, 2016 - Quebec, Canada

Tomorrow, July 15 2016, is another "Very Important" milestone for the Bombardier CSeries aircraft. This will be the first time CSeries is carrying paying customers, the "entry into service" with CSeries its first customer, SWISS.

CSeries CS100 MSN 50010 (CS100 serial #10), official CSeries P6 (for aircraft production 6) now registered to SWISS as HB-JBA will fly from Zurich (ZRH) direct to Paris (CDG), SWISS flight LX638.

Here are the names of the SWISS pilots that will have the honor of commanding this first regular CSeries passenger flight; CMD Jonathan Spreng and CMD Jan-Pietro Mühlemann Delisio.

Strong of all its Triple Certifications, Transport Canada, US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), the CSeries CS100 will start to execute on its real purpose! And this, with better efficiency and comfort over other aircraft of its size can achieve today.

It has been 12 years since the idea came up… many years of design and development, followed by years of certification/testing to insure the aircraft was perfectly safe and delivering on its promises… In fact, Bombardier delivered better than "advertised" performances…

Congratulation to all the people involved at Bombardier. Also, as being part of the 49% owing the CSeries, I want to give a special DANKE to SWISS and THANK YOU to all the people who got involved and decided to place an order with Bombardier for its new CSeries. We will make sure you won't be let down!!!

Enjoy! Another great day for Bombardier and the aviation world!
