Bombardier Aerospace disclosed (17-Jun-2013) a previously announced firm order for 10 CS100 aircraft was placed by Odyssey Airlines, a start-up airline that intends to operate from London City Airport. The firm order was announced on 24-Jun-2011. Based on the list price for the CS100 aircraft at the time of the order, the firm order is valued at USD628 million. Odyssey Airlines CEO Adam D Scott said the carrier selected the CS100 "because its transcontinental range will allow us to connect key city airports with stringent performance and environmental requirements both in Europe and further afield". The carrier will offer a premier service with a focus on new destinations that cannot currently be served from London City Airport. [more - original PR
