As noted at on Monday, the airplane maker made the announcement during the Paris Air Show 2011, but did not reveal the name of the major airline network.

“We are delighted to add yet another major network carrier to our customers for the CSeries aircraft, and to announce this customer will be the first operator in the CSeries aircraft program,” Bombardier Commercial Aircraft President Gary R. Scott said on the report.

“Our customer is keenly aware of the competitive advantage that will come with being the very first operator of Bombardier’s all-new, technologically advanced CSeries aircraft.” Scott added, noting that the order is the third one announced this month.

Apparently, the CSeries plane family were said to have been designed for a 100- to 149-seat market, which combines advanced materials, leading-edge technology and proven methods to meet the requirements of commercial airlines in 2013 and beyond.

Meanwhile, other customers that have reportedly placed orders for the CSeries aircraft include Republic Airways (40 CS300 aircraft) and Deutsche Lufthansa AG (30 CS100 aircraft).

In addition, Lease Corporation International Group ordered 17 CS300 and three CS100 aircraft, Braathens Aviation also ordered 5 CS100 and 5 CS300 aircraft and a well-established, unidentified airline ordered 3 CS100 aircraft.

Nevertheless, Mr. Scott noted that the recent 10-plane order may expand to $1.01 billion the airline network will order for six more CS100 aircraft, which the first order is being planned to deliver in 2013.
