Known for its luxurious flight experience, Qatar Airways is introducing the world’s most technologically advanced passenger aircraft, the A350-1000, equipped with the airline’s Qsuite, on flights to and from Singapore and Tokyo in the coming months.
The new flight will start its maiden journey to and from Singapore’s Changi Airport from November 1, 2018 while it will be introduced daily to Tokyo’s Handa Airport from January 1, 2019.
The two cities will be the first of Qatar Airways’ growing Far East network to welcome the ultramodern A350-1000 equipped with Qsuite.
“We are tremendously excited to bring the world’s most technologically advanced passenger aircraft fitted with revolutionary Qsuite Business Class experience to our loyal customers in Singapore and Tokyo,” said Akbar Al Baker, Group Chief Executive of Qatar Airways.
“The launch of the A350-1000 on these routes is a fulfilment of the promise we make to our passengers to provide them the finest experience available in the skies. We are confident that our A350-1000 flights and Qsuite cabins will be highly sought after, and look forward to bringing them to even more gateways throughout the Far East,” he added.
Two of Singapore’s triple-daily A350-900 services will gradually transition to the A350-1000 starting from 1 November 2018. The route is expected to be served entirely with the A350-1000 by April 2019.
The new aircraft comes with 327 seats across tow cabins- 46 Qsuite Business Class seats and 281 extra-wide 18-inch seats in Economy Class.
Qatar Airways boasts of Qsuite experience in this flight incorporating the industry’s first-ever double-bed in business class.
Sliding panels allow passengers in adjoining seats to transform their space into private cabins so business colleagues, families and friends can work, socialise and dine together during the flight.
