Toulouse, 1 February 2023 – The legal dispute between Qatar Airways and Airbus concerning A350 surface degradation and the grounding of A350 aircraft has been resolved amicably and to both parties’ satisfaction.

Due to the improper painting of A350 aircraft, Qatar Airways launched a complaint against the Airbus Corporation, claiming that this could compromise aviation safety. Although the over-surface heat that caused it is not advised in the Qatar region, this still must be corrected. Airbus is now returning to a strong response to Qatar Airways’ question and resolving the conflict.


A repair project is now underway and both parties look forward to getting these aircraft safely back in the air.

The details of the settlement are confidential and the parties will now 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.
