Jun 16, 2017: Qatar Airways, the state-owned flag carrier of Qatar will be launching the first aircraft in its fleet fitted with the ground-breaking, award-winning new Qsuite, Qatar Airways’ First in Business Class concept at this year’s Paris Air Show, taking place from 19 to 25 June at Le Bourget in Paris. Qatar Airways’ patented new seat design has already receiving the Best Airline Innovation of the Year award at the 2017 ULTRAS (Ultimate Luxury Travel Related Awards) for its launch of Qsuite.
First retro-fitted in a Qatar Airways Boeing 777 aircraft, Qsuite is an exceptional and patented seat design that will bring the First Class experience to the airline’s Business Class cabin, setting a new standard for Premium Class travel and redefining industry expectations, in tandem with the airline’s already award-winning Business Class service. The Paris Air Show will be the first time the seat has been displayed in an aircraft, allowing visitors a unique preview of the on-board offering.
Qatar Airways group chief executive, His Excellency Akbar Al Baker said, “The Paris Air Show 2017 presents the perfect platform for Qatar Airways to show to the world its first aircraft fitted with our unique, patented and game-changing product, Qsuite. I am sure that our new First in Business Class product will be a key attraction throughout the week for industry, trade, media and aviation enthusiasts alike, demonstrating once again Qatar Airways’ relentless pursuit of innovation and commitment to ensuring the highest-quality experience for our passengers.”
Qsuite features the aviation industry’s first-ever double bed available in Business Class, with privacy panels that stow away, allowing passengers in adjoining seats to create their own private room. Besides, TV monitors on the centre four seats can move to allow colleagues, friends or families travelling together to transform their space into a private suite for four to work, dine or socialise together.
New and patented features within Qsuite offer the ultimate customisable travel experience for Qatar Airways’ Business Class passengers, enabling them to create an environment specific to their own needs. Individually-crafted suites contain luxurious details such as hand-stitched leather and satin rose gold finishing, bringing an additional level of luxury, privacy and style to Qatar Airways’ Business Class offering.
To further complement the customisable on-board seating experience that passengers will now enjoy, Qatar Airways is also launching a new food and beverage concept to accompany the existing Business Class dine-on-demand service. The delights of this new menu will also be on offer during the air show. The new Business Class menu will now offer an additional selection of snack ‘sharing dishes’ available throughout the flight, allowing travellers to turn dining at 35,000 feet into a social experience. A wake-up Express Breakfast for early morning arrivals will also be available for those who choose to sleep a little longer by making the most of the ‘Do Not Disturb’ option available on the door of their private Qsuite.
