Airport delays are expected at multi-billion dollar hubs and blame is continually passed around. Qatar never followed through on a $600 million legal claim against Lindner Depa for delaying the opening, and Lindner is now blaming the airport for its losses.
Excerpt from The National
Lindner Depa Interiors, a joint venture between Depa and German partner Lindner, has filed a Dh900 million (US$250 million) arbitration claim against Qatar’s New Doha Airport as a bitter legal row over the unfinished airport escalates.
Depa, which is 24 per cent owned by Dubai’s largest contract Arabtec, was sacked from its contract to fit out 17 lounges at the long delayed new airport in June last year.
