Bombardier CS300 Awarded EASA Type Validation

Bombardier’s CS300 aircraft has been awarded type validation by European regulator EASA.

The approval will allow the Canadian OEM’s narrowbody jet to operate in the continent and follows a Transport Canada-issued type certification awarded in July 2016.

First delivery of the CS300 is scheduled to arrive in the fleet of launch customer Latvian carrier airBaltic before the end of the year.

“Our teams have produced an impressive family of aircraft with proven technology, performance, passenger amenities, economics and environmental qualifications that are turning heads and will be serving operators well in the future,” said Robert Dewar, vice-president of the CSeries aircraft programme.

“Our focus is on the completion of the first production CS300 aircraft for launch operator airBaltic as their teams focus on completing their pilot and crew training for first delivery later this year.”
