JetBlue Airways Corp. is urging U.S. regulators to reject Boeing Co.’s fair-trade complaints against Bombardier Inc. as the New York-based airline considers adding new planes to its fleet.

Boeing’s claim that Bombardier sold its C Series jets in the U.S. at less than fair value thanks to Canadian government subsidies presents “a threat to JetBlue’s ability to continue to innovate and provide benefits to the flying public,” Chief Executive Officer Robin Hayes said in a letter filed Monday with the U.S. International Trade Commission.
