CSeries to get new name, new orders at Farnborough

Airbus have announced today that the CSeries will be renamed and a raft of new orders revealed at Farnborough air show next week.

The A200 is widely expected to be the new name.

A new marketing push and new customers will hail the start of a new phase in the life of the aircraft programme, according to Airbus.

This comes at a time when Gulf Air seem to have lost interest in their order for ten aircraft, and have indicated unofficially the order will be cancelled.

There are 35 operational aircraft and 300 back orders at present.
