COURT RULES AIRBUS CONTRACTS REMAIN CONFIDENTIAL

A Federal court in Sydney has ruled that documents detailing commercial contracts between Airbus and Qantas relating to the purchase of its fleet of A380s will remain confidential.

Airbus’s lawyer, Jason Potts, cited commercial sensitivity as the primary reason for the documents to remain secret. He said the bespoke arrangement between Airbus and the airline related to ”certain rights that were given to Qantas as a launch customer [for the A380] in certain events”.

Qantas’s lawyer, Andrew Bell, SC, said the airline and Rolls-Royce were still in negotiations aimed at reaching a settlement.
