6-Mar-2012 11:37 AM

Qatar Airways announced (05-Mar-2012) it expects to take delivery of five Boeing 787s during 2012, with the first aircraft set to arrive in Qatar during the northern summer. Qatar Airways will initially fly the aircraft on intra-Gulf routes to provide flight crew with training hours before its 787 goes on static display at the Farnborough Air Show in Jul-2012. It will then enter into long-haul commercial service on the Doha-London Heathrow route. Qatar Airways currently has orders worth over USD50 billion for more than 250 aircraft, including Boeing 787, 777, A350, A380 and A320 aircraft. [more - original PR]
