Qatar Airways (QA) has reconfirmed and upsized its earlier order for 50 A320neo with a firm order instead for 50 of the larger A321neo ACF (Airbus Cabin Flex configuration), during an agreement signed on Thursday in the presence of the Emir His Highness Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al Thani and French President Emmanuel Macron.
The order was signed by Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive Akbar al Baker and Fabrice Br`gier, Airbus chief operating officer and president Commercial Aircraft.
The updated order replaces the original one placed in 2011.
The A321neo ACF will join Qatar Airways' fleet of 50 A320neo from 2019. The total value of the deal is at $6.35 billion at list prices.
Baker said,"At a time when Qatar Airways is experiencing unprecedented growth and expansion, the need for efficient, reliable and modern aircraft has never been greater. To answer our need for growth and additional capacity, the A321neo ACF is a world-class choice for our passengers and for our business. Qatar Airways is the fastest growing airline in the world and, with this aircraft, we will operate the youngest fleet while delivering comfort to our customers."
Br`gier said,"We are pleased that a signature airline like Qatar Airways has chosen the A321neo ACF. This is an endorsement for the largest member of our single aisle family."
