"Airbus deeply regrets the USTR's decision to increase tariffs on aircraft imported from the European Union as well as the decision to maintain tariffs on goods from other sectors", the company said.
The US Trade Representative said in the statement Friday that it is leaving duties on certain other European goods such as Scotch and French wine at 25 percent and will make minor changes to the previously released product list.
On Oct 18 a year ago, Washington imposed the original 10 per cent duties on Airbus aircraft and 25 per cent tariffs on a range of European consumer exports, such as cheese and Spanish olives.
This comes as a set back for the European aircraft manufacturer, Airbus, as they consider the hike illegal.
Airbus said it would ultimately harm USA airlines and consumers who have to pay extra levies, as cited by CNBC news.
The European Commission has begged Washington to come to a "negotiated solution".
Airbus aircraft that are manufactured at its site in Mobile, Alabama, appear to be exempt from these duties, as tariffs only apply to products imported from the EU.
In a statement, the firm branded the decision "deeply" regrettable, adding it creates "more instability for United States airlines that are already suffering from a shortage of aircraft".
