Airbus and Qatar edge towards agreement in A350 dispute - sources

Jet (AIR.PA) and Qatar Airways are edging towards an arrangement to clear up a bitter disagreement over grounded A350 jets, two individuals aware of the issue said on Tuesday.

Qatar’s regulator has actually based a minimum of 29 of the jets, mentioning unanswered safety and security questions, over the past year.

Various other airlines continue to fly the jets, but some have actually reached their own agreements for settlement or repair services to comparable surface damage which has been spotted throughout several service providers, according to industry resources and court records.

Qatar Airways has actually charged Plane of conspiring with the European Union Air Travel Safety And Security Firm, which proclaimed the jet safe. Asked about the insurance claim, the firm’s executive supervisor, Patrick Ky, told Reuters in a meeting: “Of course not.”
