Airbus (AIB, Toulouse Blagnac) has formally rebranded the C Series as the A220 after it assumed control of the product line from Bombardier (BBA, Montréal Trudeau) on July 1.

During a ceremony at Toulouse Blagnac on Tuesday, July 10, the European manufacturer said that going forward, the CS100 and CS300 would now be known as the AC?CS1 and AC?CS3 respectively.

“I pay tribute to all the women and men at Bombardier and the supply chain who have strived over the past years to bring this fantastic aircraft to the world," Guillaume Faury, Airbus President Commercial Aircraft, said. "The A220 now enters a new phase in its career with all Airbus’ resources behind it to further its commercial success worldwide."

Airbus Chief Executive Tom Enders hinted last week that new orders for the line, which has struggled to build a significant backlog, could be announced at the upcoming Farnborough Air Show.

Airbus currently owns a 50.01% majority stake in C Series Aircraft (CSALP), with Bombardier and Investissement Québec controlling around 34% and 16% respectively. CSALP’s head office, primary assembly line, and related functions are based at Montréal Mirabel, Québec.
