MONTREAL — The first flight of Bombardier’s new CSeries jet has been delayed by a month.
The Montreal-based company said Wednesday the inaugural flight of its new flagship passenger jet is now scheduled by the end of July.
It’s not the first delay for the much-anticipated CSeries jet, which is expected to compete with some of the smaller planes made by Boeing and Airbus.
Bombardier, the world’s third-largest maker of civil commercial aircraft, had rescheduled the first flight after falling behind its original plans late last year. The100-140 seat CSeries is critical to Bombardier Aerospace, which has spent years designing the advanced-technology jet.
