Aerospace giant Bombardier has said it's "extremely disappointed" at a decision by a top customer to cancel a major project.

Bombardier, which announced around 600 job losses earlier this month, has suffered another setback after the move by Airbus to use a product made by Collins Aerospace.

It's understood Bombardier had regarded the work on the nacelles of the A320neo jet as an important source of revenue in the future.
