Bomabardier CSSeries 300
The fist visit to Dublin Airport of the new Bombardier CSeries CS300 aircraft took place on Wednesday 24 May when C-FFDO c/n 55002 callsign BBA508 operated from Montreal to Dublin as part of it's 120 minute ETOPS (Extended Twin Operations) certification process.  The aircraft returned to Montreal the next day.

The Bombardier CSeries CS300 aircraft C-FFDK CS300 c/n 55001 visited Belfast City in July 2015 to celebrate Northern Ireland’s contribution to the success of the C Series programme at Bombardier’s wing facility.

Bombardier has made investment of £520 million in Belfast on the research, design, manufacture and assembly of the C Series aircraft wings in it's purpose-built 600,000 square feet facility using innovative carbon-fibre composite technology, enabling both material and aircraft weight savings, contributing significantly to the C Series airliner’s game-changing economic and environmental credentials.

Swiss International the launch operator for the smaller CS100, became the first operator of the type into Dublin, will become the first airline to operate both variants of the CSeries when the CS300 enters service from Geneva.

Twelve C Series aircraft have been delivered by Bombardier so far, nine of which have been delivered to SWISS. Three CS300 aircraft are currently in operations with airBaltic.
