Qatar Airways took delivery of its highly anticipated first A380. With 10 A380-800s on order, the carrier is preparing to take delivery of four of them before the end of this year.

The airline will first introduce A380 services on one of its frequencies on the Doha-London route from October, followed by Paris Charles De Gaulle shortly thereafter. In the last quarter of 2014, it is expected that the airline will start receiving its first A350 XWB aircraft as the world’s launch customer.
