GENEVA - Qatar Executive, the charter division of Doha-based Qatar Airways, has signed up to buy 10 Global 7000 and 8000 corporate jets from Canada’s Bombardier Inc. to strengthen its fleet, Qatar Airways Chief Executive Akbar Al Baker said Monday.
Al Baker also said at the European Business Aviation Conference and Exhibition that Qatar Executive has reached a strategic alliance with Bombardier’s jet unit Flexjet.
He told journalists that Qatar Airways won’t take delivery of the Airbus A380s that it has on order unless Airbus can provide a permanent fix to cracks in brackets inside the wings that Airbus is working to resolve on jets in production.
