Korean Air expects to take delivery of seven Bombardier CSeries CS300s next year, becoming the first operator of the type in Asia, Bombardier VP-CSeries aircraft program Robert Dewar told ATW at last week’s airBaltic CS300 unveiling.

“There are already Korean Air employees in Montreal, Mirabel, on the production side. Deliveries could happen from mid-2017 onward,” Dewar said.

In June 21, 2011, Bombardier announced a Korean Air commitment to acquire 10 CS300s with 10 options and 10 purchase rights.

“The CS300 delivery to Korea demonstrates the appeal of this aircraft around the globe. With our next operator in Asia, combined with clients in North America and two operating airlines in Europe, there will sure to be more interest from other Asia-based airlines, a particularly growing market,” Bombardier president commercial aircraft Fred Cromer told ATW.
