Qatar Airways on Thursday agreed a deal to buy 50 Airbus 321 planes during a state visit by French President Emmanuel Macron.

The contract, which includes an option for the Gulf carrier to buy another 30 planes, comes as the emirate is hit by a trade and diplomatic boycott by neighbouring countries in the region's worst political crisis in years.
