MIAMI — Swiss, the launch customer for the Bombardier CSeries, will begin CSeries operations to London City Airport on August 8th.
The flight, LX466, will take off from Zurich (ZRH) at 5:15 p.m. and land in London (LCY) at 5:55 p.m. (one-hour time difference between cities).
LX466 will be the first commercial CSeries flight to London City Airport since Bombardier completed flight tests to prove to the EASA that the CSeries could handle the steep approach into the airport and short runway for takeoff.
"With SWISS beginning service to London City Airport with its new CSeries, this confirms the aircraft's versatility allowing for short runway airports in urban areas," said Sylvain Faust, Founder of FliegerFaust.com and close follower of the CSeries program.
