Bombardier Inc. has regained momentum on sales campaigns with its customers, after a U.S. trade ruling last month blocked a proposed import duty on its planes, removing an uncertainty for a jet it spent $6 billion developing.

“It’s been a big relief for the industry, it’s a great victory for competition, for innovation, for the rule of law,” Colin Bole, senior vice president of Bombardier’s commercial aircraft unit, said in an interview with Bloomberg Television Haslinda Amin Tuesday in Singapore. “We’re seeing very positive momentum from our customers.”
