Qatar Airways revealed its first Boeing 777 aircraft equipped with the new Business Class seat design on day one of the show
The airline showcased the first of its aircraft fitted with its new Business Class seat, Qsuite.
Qatar’s Minister of Transport and Communications, His Excellency Mr. Jassim Saif Al Sulaiti said: “I am very proud to see the national carrier of the State of Qatar showcasing the unique Qsuite to the whole world as it continues to expand and innovate in every single way. I am also very pleased to see the national carrier of the State of Qatar proceed with its expansion plans more than expected, with endless ambition.”
H.E. Mr. Al Baker, Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, said: “We are tremendously excited to showcase the first aircraft fitted with our revolutionary new Qsuite here in Paris. This product will transform premium travel by bringing a First Class experience to the Business Class cabin.
With this innovative offering – which features the first-ever double bed in Business Class – we have set a new standard for the industry, one which demonstrates our continued commitment to providing the finest possible experience for our passengers. We look forward to the debut of Qsuite on our Doha – London Heathrow route this weekend.”
Qsuite, patented by Qatar Airways, features the 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.
Adjustable panels and movable TV monitors on the centre four seats allow colleagues, friends or families travelling together to transform their space into a private suite, allowing them to work, dine and socialise together. These new features provide the ultimate customisable travel experience that enables passengers to create an environment that suits their own unique needs.
Immediately after the Paris Air Show, the first destination to feature the Qsuite will be London from 24 June, followed by services to Paris and New York, with the airline’s fleet retrofitted at the rate of one plane per month.
The Paris Air Show, taking place this week at Le Bourget Airport, is one of the world’s most anticipated aerospace events, providing the global aviation community the opportunity to demonstrate the very best and latest advances in the industry.
