Industrial stocks Air Canada (TSX: AC) and Bombardier Inc. (TSX: BBD) have been among the most active stocks on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) throughout 2020, mostly because of their discounted prices. Yesterday’s large-cap stocks suffered major blows amid the pandemic leading to depreciation in their value.

Air Canada recently entered a partnership with Chase and Mastercard to relaunch its U.S. co-brand credit card and accelerate its Aeroplan loyalty program. Chase is likely to unveil the co-branded Aeroplan Credit Card in late 2021.

The global transportation technology company Bombardier rolled out the 5,000th BOMBARDIER FLEXX bogie frame and completed 3000 bogies at its Savli facility in India. Savli facility has only railway vehicle production operations.

Let us look at how these two industrial stocks are faring:
