QSuite takes business class to new heights QSuite takes business class to new heights

Qatar raises the bar

Qatar Airways has revealed its new business class seat, Qsuite, which the airline believes will brings new luxury to air travel.
The suites were unveiled by the airline’s chief executive officer, Akbar Al Baker, at the ITB Travel Expo in Berlin.
The patented seat – the industry’s first double bed – has been two years in the making. It features privacy panels that allow passengers in adjoining seats to create a private room.

Al Baker says the design is a world first. ‘Qatar Airways has revolutionised the way we serve our business class travellers, enabling our passengers to enjoy a first-class experience in business class,’ Al Baker says.
And to compliment the airlines dine-on-demand service, it will be offering new meal options such as a selection of sharing dishes. It has also launched a next-generation user interface of its inflight entertainment platform Oryx One, which has 3000 entertainment options.
QSuite will be installed in new model 777s and A350s as they start to enter the fleet. It will begin operating between Doha and London by June and rolled out across existing Boeing 777 and Airbus A350 planes.
The airline kicked off its Auckland to Doha route in February, and Qsuite is expected to be available here by mid-2018.
