Delta Vows Not to Pay U.S. Duties on Bombardier Planes

U.S. Commerce Department has imposed 300% tariffs on Bombardier's jetliner.

Delta Air Lines Inc. pledged not to pay import duties on Bombardier Inc.’s marquee jetliner, which was socked in the last two weeks with 300% tariffs by the U.S. Commerce Department.

It’s possible Delta will delay deliveries of the C Series planes, which are scheduled to begin next year, CEO Ed Bastian said Wednesday. The airline is also considering “various other plans” if the preliminary duties are finalized, he said without elaborating. Delta last year agreed to buy at least 75 of the jets at a list price of more than $5 billion.
