Qatar Airways Says Profitable, Will Keep Expanding

Qatar Airways is profitable and plans to keep expanding, Chief Executive Akbar Al Baker said on Thursday.

It plans to return to a pre-crisis network of 180 destinations and then resume prior expansion, he told a news conference. The airline says it has over 140 destinations now.

However, Qatar Airways has been "damaged" by the grounding of some A350 jets in a dispute with Airbus, he said after a meeting of the Arab Air Carriers Organization in Doha. The airline said in August it had taken 13 A350s out of service because of problems with the surface of the fuselage.
