Western nations including Canada have imposed sanctions on prominent Russians, taken steps to stop business with the country and closed their airspace to Russian-owned, chartered or operated aircraft.
“We will continue to adhere to international laws, regulations and sanctions, as they evolve,” the Montreal-based company said in a statement.
Bombardier said the suspended activities include all forms of technical assistance.
The company has said about 5% or 6% of its business jet deliveries traditionally go to customers in the region. Its latest reported order backlog is $12.2 billion.
Canada exported nearly C$112 million ($87.97 million) in aircraft to Russia in 2021, the highest level in the last five years, according to government data.
Separately on Friday, Transport Canada said it had cleared a private aircraft to depart from Yellowknife without passengers, after determining that the plane, while not Russian-owned or registered, had “operated contrary” to the country’s airspace restrictions when it landed on March 1.
The Canadian regulator fined Geneva-based aircraft operator Dunard Engineering Ltd C$15,000 and imposed C$3,000 fines on each of the plane’s two pilots, along with a Russian national who chartered the plane.
