Emirates says Airbus deal cancellation not driven by demand concerns

Emirates Airline’s executive vice president for service departments, Nigel Hopkins has said the carrier’s decision to cancel an order for 70 Airbus A350 jetliners did not reflect any concern about passenger demand, Reuters has reported. The order cancellation “has nothing to do with (the) demand forecast” which remains unchanged, said Hopkins on the sidelines of a press event at New York’s JFK International Airport.
