Time has been the decisive factor in finding a solution between Airbus and Qatar Airways over the various issues between the two, Airbus CEO Guillaume Faury has said. He spoke to AirInsight on Thursday after the presentation of the 2022 annual results.
On February 1, Airbus and Qatar announced an “amicable and mutually agreeable settlement” and terminate their legal dispute, which had mushroomed over a 1.5-year period. It started in 2021 with Qatar Airways CEO Akbar Al Baker complaining of the paint quality on some A350s, which became a safety concern and led to the Qatar Civil Aviation Authority (QCAA) suspending the airworthiness certificate of 29 aircraft.
