Qatar Airways says will get delivery of Airbus A350-1000s this year


[DOHA] Qatar Airways' chief executive said on Wednesday Airbus has said it would deliver its twin-engine passenger jet, the A350-1000, this year to the Middle East carrier.

Qatar Airways, the launch customer of the A350-1000, has previously cancelled four of the smaller version A350-900 aircraft, citing delays in deliveries.

"Airbus has assured us we would receive our airplanes, though late, but we will receive it before the end of the year," Qatar Airways chief executive Akbar al-Baker told reporters in Doha.
