Bombardier says it has received Transport Canada certification for the larger model of its CSeries passenger jet and the first CS300 will be delivered in the fourth quarter of this year.

CS300 Bombardier airBalticThe announcement comes as the Montreal-based company joins other industry heavyweights at a major international air show at Farnborough, England—southwest of London.

The smaller CS100 model has previously been certified by Canadian and other aviation authorities and goes into service with Swiss International Air Lines on Friday.

The first CS300 airliner—which can carry more passengers than the CS100—will be delivered to airBaltic of Latvia.

The CSeries program is 2 1/2 years behind schedule and at least $2 billion above cost estimates but Bombardier says its size and fuel efficiency will enable it to operate on routes that were previously not profitable for airlines.
