Qatar Airways Cancel It’s MAX Orders 🇶🇦
It appears that the troubles continue for Boeing and it’s 737MAX as Qatar Airlines has told boeing that it’s order for 30 new aircraft will not be taken up. In 2016 the airline made a significant aircraft order for new 787s and 777s this order also included up to 60 737MAX aircraft. The reasons given by the Qatar CEO, Akbar al-Baker was that the airline no longer needed the type. Could this be due to the effect the COVID-19 pandemic has had on the airline industry? Given that Qatar is primarily a long haul airline It will be more financially damaged by this outbreak which perhaps is why they are not committing to much money towards more aircraft.
As for the Max it’s currently had over 500 cancellations in 2020 with the most notable pf them being the Avalon leasing group which cancelled an 8 Billion dollar order as well as Brazilian airline GOL cancelling an order for 34 new aircraft. Troubling times indeed…
