SWISS will be supporting this landmark event by offering spectators a very special treat: a Saturday flypast above the city’s lakeside promenade by HB-JBB, its second brand-new Bombardier C Series aircraft. Not only that, but SWISS will also be taking the opportunity to name its brand-new CS100 ‘Canton de Genève’.SWISS already celebrated the delivery of its first Bombardier C Series aircraft – CS100 HB-JBA, which now bears the name ‘Kanton Zürich’ – on 1 July. And on Saturday 6 August SWISS’s second new short- and medium-haul twinjet from the Canadian manufacturer will be named ‘Canton de Genève’ at Geneva Airport. The choice of name for CS100 HB-JBB reflects SWISS’s keen and continued commitment to the people of Western Switzerland, who will be reaping the full benefit of the new ‘Whisperjet’ from next year onwards. The innovative Bombardier C Series sets new industry benchmarks with its inflight comfort, its operating economics and its environmental credentials.Bombardier CS100 HB-JBB will be formally named ‘Canton de Genève’ after its first landing at Geneva Airport in a ceremony hosted by Lorenzo Stoll, SWISS’s Head of Western Switzerland. The aircraft will be jointly named by Luc Barthassat, Geneva cantonal transport, environment and agriculture minister, and by Genevan actor and comedienne Brigitte Rosset, who feels a close affinity to her home city and region.
