The Gulfstream G550 and G650, as well as the Boeing Business Jet BBJ1, are ensnared in 25-percent aircraft import tariffs imposed today by China as a result of an escalating tit-for-tat trade war with the U.S. It's unclear if these tariffs are an increase of, or are in addition to, China's existing 22-percent import tariff on business aircraft.
Aircraft with "unladen weights" (i.e. basic empty weights) between 15,000 kg/33,069 pounds and 45,000 kg/99,208 pounds are included in China's latest tariff list that covers $50 billion worth of imports.
