Qatar Airways has recently announced its plans to retire their Airbus A330 and A320 fleet in an interview with the Gulf Times. The entire fleet will be replaced by the ultra-efficient fleet of A350s and Boeing 787 Dreamliners. Qatar Airways now operates eight A330-200s, 13 A330-300s, and 4 A330-200 freighters. Its fleet currently has an average age of six years which isn’t too old considering that the aircraft can fly up to 30 years. However, Qatar Airways needed a young fleet to offer competitive and financially effective services to its passengers. Additionally, earlier this year Airbus confirmed that it would no longer produce Airbus A380 starting from the year 2021. Qatar Airways also confirmed they will retire their Superjumbo in 2024 after they have achieved their decade milestone.
