Qatar Airways files $600m lawsuit over airport delay
- Qatar: Sunday, December 30 - 2012 at 10:00
Qatar Airways has said it will file a $600m legal claim against German Emirati joint venture construction company Lindner Depa Interiors (LDI) for delays in the opening of the New Doha International Airport. The carrier said LDI was to complete the construction of 19 airport lounges by the summer of 2012, but failed to complete the project on time. The new airport was due to have opened this month but has now been put back to the second half of 2013. Qatar Airways claims that LDI, which was operating under a contract worth $250m, had "badly defaulted" with the delayed airport opening seriously affecting the airline's expansion plans, causing huge revenue losses, increased construction costs and delay penalties, and more importantly, inconveniencing passengers.
