Qatar Airways seeks compensation of up to 600 million dollars


Media said that the date of April 26 has been set as the date for hearing a lawsuit in the High Court in London, which was filed by Qatar Airways, against Airbus, the airline giant.

Reuters quoted sources as saying that Qatar Airways is seeking compensation of up to 600 million dollars, after accusing Airbus of selling poor quality aircraft.

In a video, Qatar Airways reviewed the defects in the Airbus A350 aircraft, in terms of paint, quality of upholstery, and others.

With the case avoiding a quick settlement, experts say it is the first time ever that a dispute over contracts and safety between an aircraft manufacturer and a major airline has threatened to take the case to court, allowing commercial decisions and technical issues to be revealed.

On Thursday, Airbus said it had canceled a contract with Qatar Airways to buy 50 A320neo planes, widening the dispute between them.

“We can confirm that we have already terminated the contract for 50 A321 aircraft with Qatar Airways, consistent with our rights,” a spokesperson said.
