Qatar 'still interested' in Bombardier CSeries

19th July 2010, Comments 0 comments

Qatar Airways said on Monday that it remained interested in acquiring small CSeries jets from Canadian manufacturer Bombardier despite not announcing an order here, as expected.

"We are still talking to Bombardier on CSeries... We are still interested in the aircraft," Qatar Airways' chief executive Akbar al-Baker told reporters gathered on the first day of the Farnborough airshow near London.

"We would have been happy to do something at the show but unfortunately some issues have not been resolved but they would be soon."

Instead on Monday, Qatar Airways announced a deal to buy two Bombardier Global 5000 business jets in a deal worth 90 million dollars (69.5 million euros).
