Airbus officially lists CSeries in product line-up

Airbus has formally added the Bombardier CSeries to its portfolio of commercial aircraft, for now retaining the CS100 and CS300 identities.

The European airframer is listing the 130- to 140-seat CS300 as having a range of 3,300nm (6,112km) while the CS100, typically seating 120, has a range of 3,100nm.

Its online commercial aircraft product pages have been updated to include detailed technical information for the CSeries although the accompanying illustrations still show the jets in Bombardier colours.

The airframer has yet to disclose whether it will adopt a new brand or designation for the CS100 and CS300.

Airbus is intending to hold a pre-Farnborough briefing, centred on its aircraft family, at its Toulouse headquarters on 10 July.

Bombardier, in turn, has redirected its CSeries online pages to Airbus and its own commercial aircraft site features only the CRJ family and Q400 turboprop.

Airbus closed its transaction to acquire just over 50% of the CSeries Aircraft Limited Partnership on 1 July.
