Bombardier has confirmed that UK start-up carrier Odyssey Airlines is the customer behind a June 2011 firm order for 10 CS100 aircraft.
Odyssey chief executive Adam Scott says the aircraft's transcontinental range will allow the carrier to connect "key city airports". The airline plans to operate from London City.
"We have a unique strategy that will offer a premier service with a focus on new destinations that cannot currently be served from London City airport," says Scott, who names New York JFK as a possible destination to which Odyssey could operate the CS100.
Odyssey's CSeries order is valued at $628 million.
