Qatar Airways has reportedly accepted to take the delivery of four Airbus A350 airliners, which was cancelled earlier due to aerospace supplier issues.
A deal has been reached allowing the four planes, still in Qatar Airways colours and parked in Toulouse, France, to be delivered “in the near future,” one of the sources said.
An Airbus spokesman said: “It is our customers’ privilege to comment on their next deliveries”.
The cancellation had put the Airbus in trouble as it had invested $1.2 billion on inventory at list prices. The decision to accept the Airbus will spare millions of dollars for the makers.
