In a press release by Qatar Airways, the company announced that it had reached an amicable and mutually agreeable settlement with Airbus in relation to their legal dispute over A350 surface degradation and the grounding of A350 aircraft. A repair project is now underway, and both parties look forward to getting these aircraft safely back in the air.
It can be recalled that in early 2022, Qatar Airways and Airbus were in dispute over the quality of Europe's newest long-haul jet after damage to its protective outer skin exposed gaps in lightning protection and prompted Qatari authorities to ground more than 20 jets.

The settlement details are confidential, and the parties will proceed to discontinue their legal claims. The settlement agreement is not an admission of liability for either party.
This agreement will enable Qatar Airways and Airbus to move forward and work together as partners.
