The local MP said, “Whilst these jobs are part of the previously announced redundancies, the final announcement is still a huge blow not least for those families who will be directly impacted.

This announcement is not directly linked to the ongoing dispute with Boeing and the upcoming ruling by the US Department of Commerce. However, it once again underscores the importance of Bombardier to the local economy and the importance of the CSeries to Bombardier’s operation here.

We will continue to do anything possible to assist the company as they seek new markets for the CSeries which is one of the most innovative aircrafts being produced by any company across the globe.”
