Bombardier has delivered its first C Series CS300 to launch customer airBaltic, the parent of Learjet said on Monday.

A two-hour delivery ceremony was held Monday morning at Bombardier’s facilities in Mirabel, a suburb of Montreal, where the planemaker is based.

AirBaltic, the flag carrier for Latvia, has a firm order for 20 CS300s, which is the largest C Series variant.

Its first CS300 will enter service on Dec. 14.

The CS100 and CS300 have undergone extensive flight testing at Bombardier’s flight test center at Wichita Eisenhower National Airport.
