Qatar for the Bombardier C series?

QATAR AIRWAYS CEO Akbar al Baker confirmed at a press conference last week in Dubai that the airline will take delivery next year of six Boeing 787s rather than the two planned.  The airline has on order a total of 60.  Baker also said Qatar's national carrier hoped to conclude talks with Canada's Bombardier over the purchase of 20 to 30 C series aircraft by July in time for a Farnborough Air Show announcement.  Beginning 7 June daily flights to Barcelona will be added to the airline's network, supporting existing scheduled services to the capital Madrid and reinforcing Qatar Airways' position as the only Gulf carrier currently flying to Spain.  Sao Paulo and Buenos Aires will be added later in the month.  The airline also has hotels within its vision with a new project under way at Doha. www.qatarairways.com
