OTTAWA, April 28 (Reuters) - A big order by Delta Airlines Inc for Bombardier Inc jets does not change the Canadian government's stance on whether to meet the planemaker's request for financial aid, a source close to the matter said on Thursday.

The Canadian government's focus has always been on the long-term viability of the Quebec-based company and Canada's aerospace sector, not on a single deal, said the source, who requested anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter. (Reporting by David Ljunggren; Editing by Paul Simao)
