DSC_0991The proposed Airbus-Bombardier partnership received regulatory clearance from the Canadian government Friday and the two companies said that the deal, which is focused on the new C Series jet, will close July 1.

Navdeep Bains, the country’s minister of innovation, science, and economic development, said he was satisfied that the deal would “benefit Canadians by growing our aerospace sector and creating good jobs.”

Once the deal, which was announced last October, closes, Canada will be considered a home country for Airbus, the first outside of Europe.

Under the terms of the partnership, Airbus will acquire a majority stake in the C Series program, the two companies said in a statement. The two companies will use an assembly line in Alabama to build the aircraft for U.S. customers.

The C Series is a family of narrow-body aircraft built largely from composite materials. Depending on the model and configuration, it can seat between 108 and 160 passengers.
