Bombardier wins USA trade case taken by Boeing

28 January, 2018, 00:10 | Author: Melinda Barton
  • The Airbus A320neo right and the Bombardier CS300 are similar aircraft in that they're twin-engine single-aisle craft designed for medium-range routes. Bombardier's C Series jets are smaller however making them complementary rather than direct compet

This allowed Bombardier to sell the planes to Delta at unfairly low prices, which was harmful to Boeing's business, according to the aerospace giant.

The carrier was one of at least three US operators - the others were Spirit Airlines Inc. and Sun Country Airlines - that wrote to the Commerce Department and the International Trade Commission past year to express support for Bombardier.

Chrystia Freeland, Canada's Minister of Foreign Affairs said in a statement that, "We are very pleased with today's vote by the ITC, which confirms Canada's position that Boeing is not commercially threatened by Bombardier's C Series aircraft".

A US agency voted 4-0 to reject proposed duties on Bombardier's CSeries, dismissing Boeing's claim that it had been harmed by the sale of jets at low prices to Delta Air Lines.

Bombardier also argued that the commission should reject the petition in part due to its new partnership with Airbus SE, which will see the European planemaker take control of the CSeries program and assemble USA -bound jets in a facility in Alabama.

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said $1.5 billion in Canadian government subsidies for Bombardier would damage US industry.

The decision means Bombardier can make deliveries to Delta Air Lines Inc. It has likewise added to strains between the USA furthermore, Canada, as the Trump organization tries to renegotiate terms in the North American Free Trade Agreement, or NAFTA.

Still, the surprise verdict by a panel of nonpartisan government experts is likely to have little impact on the president's plans to erect other barriers against what he regards as unfair trade.

In an unexpected choice, the U.S. Global Trade Commission has ruled against aviation goliath Boeing in an unpleasant exchange body of evidence it brought against Bombardier over traveler streams its Canadian opponent sold to Delta Air Lines.

It alone is responsible for the design, manufacture and assembly of the advanced composite wings for every CSeries aircraft.

"The ITC has done a thorough and good job of recognizing the interconnected nature of aerospace manufacturing today", she wrote.

Boeing has said the cheap pricing in the Delta deal cascaded through the broader market, damaging its profits.

Late previous year, Canadian officials made good on an earlier threat to cancel a proposed purchase of F/A-18 Super Hornet fighter planes, dealing a blow to Boeing's defense contracting business.

Boeing said it disagreed with Friday's trade ruling and would review it when further details became available.

Mrs May had unsuccessfully lobbied Donald Trump not to impose the restrictions at the time.

Bombardier shares jumped more than 15% after the ruling.

"I think it's cost them too much in terms of reputation and actually in terms of defence orders for them to appeal", said Ernie Arvai, a partner at USA commercial aviation consultancy AirInsight.

Paul Everitt, chief executive of aerospace trade organisation ADS said: "This judgement from the US International Trade Commission is positive news that will be warmly welcomed by Bombardier, its workforce in Belfast and the whole supply chain of companies in the United Kingdom and Ireland".
