Boeing gewinnt Katar Großauftrag, ein Schlag für Airbus

By Jordi Bou

February 1, 2022 - Qatar Airways planen den Kauf von 34 777X Frachtflugzeugen und 25
Stück 737 MAX von Boeing, ein Schlag für Airbus, die in einen bitteren Streit mit der Doha Airline wegen mutmaßlicher Lackschäden an der Außenhaut seiner A350 Flugzeuge verwickelt ist.

The deal, signed at the White House during a visit to Washington by Qatar's ruling emir, widened the fallout from a dispute between Qatar Airways and Airbus .

The European planemakerearlier this month revoked a contract with Qatar Airways for 50 competing A321neo jets as part of a spiraling dispute that began with disagreements over the severity of flaws on long-haul A350 jets.

Qatar is an important Arab partner for Washington. Home to the U.S.’s largest military base in the Middle East, it played a crucial role in the U.S.’s chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan last year.

In recent weeks, Washington has held discussions with Doha about whether it could help supply gas to Europe if a Russian invasion of Ukraine disrupts energy supplies to the continent.
