Airbus ends its contract with Qatar Airways, 19 A350s will not be delivered

One more episode in the dispute between Airbus and the airline Qatar Airways. At the origin of the litigation, a paint defect on the fuselages of the A350s which produces cracks, reports Le Figaro.


However, according to the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), this anomaly does not affect flight safety. The Gulf company has taken legal action and is asking for 200,000 dollars in compensation per plane and per day of immobilization, that is to say more than 1.4 billion dollars.

$7 billion order canceled

Pending a judgment on the merits, Airbus has decided to cancel the last A350 orders from the Doha company, ie 19 long-haul flights for a value of 7 billion dollars. At the beginning of 2022, another cancellation had taken place for 50 A321neos. Such a conflict is unprecedented in the world of aviation, because if it happens that a company gives up its purchases due to a downturn in the economy, it is rare for it to be at the initiative of the manufacturer whereas the airline is able to pay.


Airbus offered solutions for its painting that other companies agreed to implement, not Qatar Airways. The court rejected a request from the latter to prevent Airbus from reselling the A350s it was unable to deliver to other customers until the dispute is settled.
