Bombardier has announced that SWISS (Swiss International Air Lines) will be the first customer to receive and operate the Bombardier CS100, the first aircraft of the CSeries program. Bombardier will also bring the CS100 to the Paris Air Show in June 2015, which will be the "world debut" of the aircraft. After the airshow, Bombardier plans to fly the aircraft to Switzerland to showcase case the aircraft for SWISS. SWISS is owned by Lufthansa and they ordered 30 CS100 jets in 2009. At that time they were the launch customer for the aircraft and were expected to take delivery of the first CS100 jet. Bombardier plans to have the CS100 certified by the the end of 2015 and deliver the aircraft in the first half of 2016.
