The aircraft has been in service for Swiss since July 15 prior to being displayed to the press in Budapest. The plane will operate routes to Budapest itself, as well as Prague, Geneva, Warsaw, Paris, Brussels and Manchester.

The CS100 will replace the the Avro RJ100 aircraft in the Swiss fleet.

The CS100 boasts numerous technological innovations. This includes a cockpit features five large colour monitors, providing information on flight parameters to the pilots, who manoeuvre the aircraft not with a traditional control stick, but with a computerised sidestick.

A lot of composite materials (eg carbon fibre reinforced plastic) were used in the wings and fuselage, to reduce weight and improve aerodynamics.

Another brand new feature is the use of the Pratt & Whitney PW1524G-type geared turbofan engines, which provide a 20% fuel saving and make the CS100 substantially quieter than other aircraft in its category.

Iris Malich, head of Swiss in Germany, Austria and Central Europe, said: “We are very proud of the latest type in our fleet, and especially of the fact that the new aircraft operates to Budapest on a regular basis. In addition to the high quality of service we are accustomed to at SWISS, we are now able to offer our passengers greater comfort and a quieter cabin. Operational experiences with the new Canadian aircraft have been very positive so far, and our passengers have taken a liking to them immediately.”
