WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Canada's Bombardier Inc (BBDb.TO: Quote) on Tuesday said it had held talks with European planemaker Airbus (AIR.PA: Quote) about "certain business opportunities," but those discussions were no longer under way.

The statement followed a similar announcement by Airbus, and news reported earlier by Reuters that Bombardier had approached Airbus about selling it a majority stake in the company's CSeries jet.

Bombardier said it would continue to "explore initiatives, such as a potential participation in industry consolidation," but gave no further details.
