Decision due from USA on Bombardier trade dispute

Decision due from USA on Bombardier trade dispute”

Bombardier is pushing hard for orders in China, the world's fastest-growing aviation market, at a time when it faces threats to US sales of the C-Series single-aisle jet because of a trade dispute with USA rival Boeing Co (BA.N).

American firm Boeing alleged in April that Canada's Bombardier received unfair state subsidies from Canada and the United Kingdom, allowing it to sell its C-Series passenger jets to USA airline Delta at below cost.

Bombardier employs more than 4,000 people at a plant in East Belfast.

Bombardier is one of Northern Ireland's largest employers and supports hundreds of other jobs through its suppliers.

Boeing says Bombardier was able to offer attractive pricing to Delta Air Lines Inc. previous year - in a deal for at least 75 aircraft - because of government assistance.

The US Department of Commerce could introduce a preliminary tariff on the C-Series, which would increase the cost of importing the plane to the US, when it publishes its initial findings later.

He also said Bombardier could expand its activities at China's Shenyang Aircraft Corporation, which already makes part of the fuselage for its C-series and Q-series aircraft.

"If the C-Series is ground to a halt, potentially you have up to 800 jobs there plus you have the supply chains in the wider community as well, so it is a very worrying time".

"Prime Minister Trudeau is coming to China next month so there is optimism that Bombardier will be among those able to announce deals on that trip", he said.

Jimmy Kelly, Unite the Union's Irish regional secretary, said Boeing had suffered no detriment and that there was no merit in this case.

In response, Mr Brokenshire called for a "negotiated" outcome. However, it won't have any impact until Bombardier delivers the first CSeries aircraft to Delta Air Lines next year.

A recent Bombardier statement said: "It is pure hypocrisy for Boeing to say that the C-Series launch pricing is a "violation of global trade law" when Boeing does the same for its new aircraft".

Delta is taking the smaller CS100 model of the plane.

Quebec's provincial government invested $1 billion last year for a 49.5 percent stake in the C Series, and its federal counterpart followed this year with a C$372.5 million ($301 million) financing package for two of Bombardier's jet programs, including the C Series.
