Bombardier CSeries 100

The latest aircraft in its class

The use of state-of-the-art technology for engines, systems and materials means that the Bombardier CSeries sets new standards in economy and environmental sustainability. Thanks to innovations in the cabin design, passengers can look forward to significantly more comfort as they travel. From 2016, the CSeries will gradually replace the Avro RJ100 fleet of Swiss Global Air Lines.

New standards in environmental sustainability

Innovation and technology

The latest design combined with state-of-the-art technology. The CSeries sets standards, and appeals for innovations that benefit passengers and the environment.

Wingspan 35.10 m
Length 34.90 m
Height 11.80 m

Aerodynamics

Aerodynamics

Optimum aerodynamics

The CSeries appeals for its aerodynamics. Specially designed wings and winglets, combined with the choice of optimum engine size, results in the ideal flow pattern. The aerodynamic design also contributes greatly to the reduction in fuel consumption.

CO₂ emissions

CO₂ emissions

20% less CO₂

With a 20% reduction in fuel consumption, the CSeries sets new standards in CO₂ emissions. Key factors in this reduction are the newly designed engines, optimised aerodynamics and lower weight.

Close

Noise emissions

The quietest commercial aircraft

The CSeries also sets new standards in noise emissions, and the level is now half that which can be perceived by the human ear. This is another area where SWISS and the new CSeries are making an important contribution towards improving the quality of life for people who live near an airport.

Close
NOx emission

NOx emission

50% less nitrogen oxide

As well as CO₂, nitrogen oxides (NOx) also have a marked influence on the environment. The new turbines have been designed so that special air intake supports in the combustion cells reduce the combustion temperature inside the engine, which reduces the nitrogen oxide emission by 50%.

Lightweight construction

Lightweight construction

Travelling lighter

The lightweight construction of the CSeries is down to the new aluminium-lithium alloy that is much more rigid and resistant to corrosion than classic aircraft aluminium. This has been combined with sensibly chosen composites to reduce the weight by one tonne.

Close
Production

Production

Ergonomic work design

Special workplaces have been designed so that the items under construction revolve around the workers, eliminating the need for them to adopt unnatural positions. Furthermore, the production process has been copied from the automotive industry, and now robots are used to achieve a very high level of quality.

Close
Brake

Brake

Innovative braking system

The CSeries also contains the world's first electric braking system, which was developed by Meggitt PLC. Electric brakes increase braking efficiency and reduce wear. The braking force is applied evenly, which making the landing gentler for passengers.

Close
Turbines

Turbines

Innovative, efficient and ecological

The CSeries is powered by PurePower® PW1524G engines, a new development by Pratt & Whitney. Planetary gears cause the drive blades to rotate more slowly, which increases efficiency. The high bypass ratio reduces the noise emission. Specially developed cooling of the combustion temperature lowers the NOx emission.

Close
Cockpit

Cockpit

The pilot as the person at the heart of it all

The cockpit was designed specifically to suit pilots' requirements, and focuses on ergonomics and clarity. The instruments are all within the direct line of sight. A special display provides the pilots with all the relevant information, which is projected at eye level.

Close
Overhead lockers

Overhead lockers

Easy storage of hand baggage

There is plenty of space for hand baggage in the overhead lockers. The layout makes it very easy to fill them, and the closing mechanism is aimed upwards, which greatly increases the feeling of spaciousness in the cabin.

Close

Air conditioning

Optimum control of the air conditioning

The air conditioning system on the CSeries is controlled automatically according to the number of passengers. This guarantees the best possible ventilation, and ensures that every seat in the cabin is at a pleasant temperature.

Close

Monitors

Entertainment in every row

The CSeries has a monitor above every row that shows passengers short films, route information and information on connecting flights during the flight.

Close

Windows

Brighter cabin

Larger windows positioned more closely together allow plenty of daylight into the cabin, which creates a feeling of greater spaciousness. The windows are specially cut out so passengers can lean into them to enjoy the views.

Close

Table

Sit in greater comfort

Whether eating or working, the table support is now placed in the middle, which means that even when the table is folded down passengers have lots of room for their knees – much more comfortable.

More comfort for the crew too

Bombardier designed the galley in close co-operation with SWISS. The functional, ergonomic design is based directly on crews' wishes.

C Series simulator ready for pilot training

Swiss AviationTraining (SAT) put its new Bombardier C Series full-flight simulator into service at its Zurich Airport training base today. The simulator, which is the first in Europe to be certificated for pilot training, will be primarily used to train the C Series flightdeck crews of Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS). Its entry into service marks a further key step in SAT’s development as a skilled and professional provider of comprehensive training solutions for cockpit and cabin personnel.
