Qatar Airways has revealed its new ‘QSuite’ Business Class’ Experience.
The new deluxe product features ‘party of four’ seating, the first-ever double bed available in Business Class and a host of other firsts in Premium Class travel.
QSuite has 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 allows colleagues, friends or families traveling together to transform their space into a private suite, allowing them to work, dine and socialize together.
New food and beverage concept
Qatar Airways is also launching a new food and beverage concept, introducing a menu that offers a host of new dining choices.
In addition to the existing ‘dine on demand’ service, the new Business Class menu will offer a selection of snack ‘sharing dishes’ available throughout the flight. A wake-up Express Breakfast 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.
QSuite feature other special touches and additional service enhancements, including elegant new chinaware and cutlery, sumptuous soft furnishings and luxurious bed linens.
The White Company will provide exclusively-designed cotton Business Class sleeper suits and luggage brand BRIC’S bespoke new amenity kits featuring products from Italy’s Castello Monte Vibiano Vecchio complete the refreshed and enhanced experience.
Next generation user-friendly interface to Oryx One entertainment system
Qatar Airways also launched a completely new next-generation user interface of Oryx One, its inflight entertainment platform. Oryx One’s interface has been redesigned to make it even easier to surf content and choose from up to 3,000 entertainment options.
The user interface has evolved from the rapidly maturing online media sector, presenting movies, games and a special children’s menu in a format that is immediately familiar yet revolutionary for on-board passengers.
The new QSuite concept will be retrofitted on to the existing Qatar Airways fleet starting from June 2017, at an estimated rate of one aircraft a month.
Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker:
“Today I am proud to unveil the future of Premium travel with our new QSuite Business Class. Our unique and patented design is a world first in many ways and challenges industry norms by offering passengers more privacy, more choice and more personalization. With these innovations, Qatar Airways has revolutionized the way we serve our Business Class travelers enabling our passengers to enjoy a First Class experience in Business Class. This is truly Business Class as never seen before and is entirely in keeping with our Premium product and service philosophy. On Qatar Airways, you choose when you dine, and the menu options are varied, with something for everyone. You choose when you rest, and when you want entertainment, we offer more choices than any other airline. It only makes sense to give you the choice to make your own cabin-within-a-cabin, creating double QSuites or quadrants.”
H.E. Mr. Al Baker also announced that starting this summer, Qatar Airways will begin offering best-in-class inflight connectivity, with more announcements to come in the weeks and months ahead.
