Qatar Airways orders Two Airbus Corporate Jetliners

Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Wednesday, 27 June 2007

Qatar Airways has placed a commitment for two Airbus Corporate Jetliners (ACJs), adding to the three Airbus ACJ Family aircraft that it already operates.

The new deal takes this year's sales of the Airbus ACJ Family (excluding widebodies) to 19 - almost as many as the 20 sold in the whole of last year.

"Having operated thee Airbus ACJs for a while, we are delighted to add two more aircraft in support of our VVIP operations," said Qatar Airways CEO Akbar Al-Baker. "We strive to achieve success in both our VVIP and airline operations, and having modern and attractive aircraft such as the Airbus ACJs helps us to achieve our goal."

Qatar Airways was the first airline to order the Airbus ACJ. It is also a major customer for Airbus airliners, having recently placed a major order for 80 of the new A350XWB point-to-point aircraft and an additional order for three hub-to-hub A380s.

All of the Airbus aircraft flown, and ordered, by Qatar Airways feature a common cockpit, saving costs by reducing training time, and making it easier and more intuitive for pilots to move from one aircraft to another during their career.
