As part of its PrivatAir CSeries CS100 order announced yesterday, Bombardier provided a significant allusion to one of its unannounced customers.
"Included among the 11 customers that have selected the CSeries aircraft are major network carriers, national carriers, premium airlines serving city centre airports, a low-cost airline, leasing companies and now, with the order from PrivatAir announced today, a full service provider to airline partners," said Philippe Poutissou, Vice President, Marketing, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft.
The orders are indicated as follows: Firm orders for Republic Airways, Lufthansa, Lease Corporation International, Korean Air, Braathens Aviation, an unidentified major network carrier, an unidentified European customer, a well-established, unidentified airline, and letters of intent from Atlasjet and Ilyushin Finance.
With PrivatAir specifically not included in its list of operator descriptions above, Bombardier appears to be tipping its hand about its prospects for already having secured a premium configured CSeries operating out of a city center airport, like that of London City, which sounds an awful lot like the rumoured Odyssey Airlines.
