Aircraft manufacturer cancels order of 50 Aircraft by Airline – Qatar Airways

A legal dispute between Airbus and Qatar Airways can be traced back to the paint issue that has now escalated with the former canceling a $6 billion contract with the latter (covering 50 Airbus A321 aircraft) – a move that is peculiar for an aircraft manufacturer.

The paint issue indicates a safety issue, alleged Qatar Airways that caused the airline to refuse delivery of another two of the same kind and is currently seeking compensation with Airbus.

Independent assessment conducted by the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) sees no safety concerns.

The Airbus A320 has been a key aircraft for Qatar Airways and has been the aircraft Qatar Airways cadets fly following the completion of the Qatar Airways MPL Cadet Program.
