DUBLIN, July 6 (Reuters) - Qatar Airways said any delays with the delivery of the Airbus A350 long-haul jets are down to Airbus, its chief executive said on Thursday.
“We are asking Airbus to deliver it faster,” CEO Akbar al-Baker said at a Dublin news conference. “The delay is from Airbus.”
Qatar Airways has previously said delivery delays by Airbus had forced to it push back expansion plans.
The Doha-based airline also recently ordered two Boeing 747-8 freighters, al-Baker said. (Reporting by Conor Humphries in Dublin, writing by Alexander Cornwell in Dubai; editing by Jason Neely and David Evans)
