Qatar Airways Endorses Larger A350 XWB Models

Converts Orders To All -900 And -1000 Variants

The State of Qatar’s national airline, Qatar Airways and Airbus have signed an amendment to convert its existing firm order for twenty A350-800s, forty A350-900s and twenty A350-1000s to 43 A350-900s and 37 A350-1000s. Qatar Airways’ total order for A350 XWB aircraft remains at 80 aircraft.

“We have taken the time necessary to come to today’s decision in favor of the larger A350 XWB models which we believe are best suited to our business model,” said Akbar Al Baker, Qatar Airways’ CEO.
 
“Qatar Airways has been involved in the development of the A350 XWB from the very early days. So we are truly delighted with their decision to grow their business with the two larger A350 XWB models,” said Fabrice Bregier, Airbus’ President and CEO. “This decision by Qatar Airways not only confirms the market trend towards larger A350’s but it also demonstrates the value of offering, as we do with the A350 XWB, a true family of aircraft from which our customers can select the models that best meet their individual requirements.”
