The U.S. Commerce Department on Tuesday slapped preliminary anti-subsidy duties on CSeries jets made by Bombardier Inc. after rival Boeing Co. charged that the aircraft were unfairly subsidized by Canada.

The department said it imposed a 219.63 percent countervailing duty on Bombardier’s new commercial jets after it made a preliminary finding of subsidization. Boeing has complained the 110- to 130-seat aircraft were dumped below cost in the U.S. market last year while benefiting from unfair subsidies.
