The airline said it is keeping in line with its pro-environmental credentials after research had shown that the A380s emit around 80% more carbon dioxide per block hour in comparison to its A350-900s and A350-1000s.
The airline said: "Until passenger demand recovers to appropriate levels, Qatar Airways will continue to keep its A380 aircraft grounded, ensuring it only operates commercially and environmentally responsible aircraft.”
