REUTERS: Bombardier pulled its 2020 outlook on Tuesday and said it would halt all non-essential work at most of its Canada-based operations until April 26 to help slow the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.

The Canadian company also said the suspension includes its aircraft and rail production activities in the provinces of Quebec and Ontario.

Reuters had reported on Monday that Bombardier would suspend Canadian production of its corporate jets to comply with restrictions imposed by provincial governments.
