Innovation for you and the environment
SWISS is the first airline in the world to order a total of 30 Bombardier type C Series 100 and C Series 300 aircraft . Thanks to the latest technology in engines, systems and materials, the C series is currently considered the most innovative aeroplane. It is used on European routes, and is to replace the Avro RJ100.
Flight experience and comfort
Light cabin and better views
Large windows positioned closely together allow plenty of daylight into the cabin, which provides a new sense of space. Lean against your window and enjoy the views.
What is also new is that there are screens above every row of seats that show films and display the flight information during your flight.
Easy to store your hand baggage
There is plenty of space in the new overhead compartments for your hand baggage. It only takes moments to put it away. The new design has greatly increased the feeling of spaciousness in the cabin.
The air conditioning is automatically controlled according to the number of passengers. This guarantees the best possible ventilation and a pleasant temperature for every seat.
Relax and enjoy
Whether dining or working, the table support is now positioned in the middle, which means there is always plenty of room for your knees even with the table folded down.
Innovation and the environment
Low CO2 emissions
The fuel consumption has been reduced by 20 percent, and with it the CO2 emissions as well. This is thanks to the newly developed engines, optimised aerodynamics and lightweight construction.
Quietest commercial aircraft
The noise level that is perceived by the human ear has been halved. The new C series is an important contribution by SWISS to the quality of life of the people who live near the airport.
The combination of the specially shaped wings and winglets and the optimum engine size reduces the fuel consumption.
The weight of the aircraft has been reduced by a tonne, thanks in no small part to the new kind of aluminium and selected composites.
Innovative braking system
The C series is the first aircraft to use an electric braking system. This increases efficiency and reduces wear. It also provides a softer landing for passengers.
Working above the clouds
The cockpit was developed specifically to fulfil our pilots' requirements. Now, for instance, all the relevant information can be projected to them at eye level.
The on-board kitchen, the galley, has also been redesigned. The functional and ergonomic design supports our cabin crew with their work.
