Qatar Airways is set to raise its orders for the Airbus A380 at next month's Paris air show, and should also finally conclude a deal for the freighter conversion of its A330 passenger fleet, Flightglobal has reported.

The carrier plans to sign 'a small order' for additional A380s, with the size still to be finalised but "it won't be a hundred aircraft," CEO Akbar Al Baker said. The airline currently holds orders for five A380s, with the first delivery scheduled for 2013.
