Qatar Airways to unveil new First Class cabin

Qatar Airways… pioneering innovation in digital technologies, products, fleet growth and employee engagement

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive Officer, Engr. Badr Mohammed Al-Meer, has revealed new developments in line with his vision for the future of Qatar Airways, including the introduction of new First-Class cabins on some of its fleet.

The redesigned premium Qsuite is set to debut at the Farnborough International Airshow in July this year.

“Based on the demand from certain sectors, we see a high demand for First Class, and as such, have decided to introduce a newly designed First-Class cabin unique to Qatar Airways. No one can develop a First-Class cabin better than us – we are combining the experience of flying commercial and executive jets to develop something new. We are 70 to 80 per cent ready and are only finalising colours. We are hoping to announce it soon.”

Qatar Airways’ award-winning Qsuite Business Class challenged industry norms when it was launched in 2017 and continues to be a benchmark for the aviation industry.

Designed to invigorate the global airline and its group of businesses, Engr. Badr Al-Meer’s roadmap for success includes innovation as the key pillar, which is reflected in Qatar Airways’ upcoming products and services.

Qatar Airways GCEO also stated that the competitive aviation landscape in the GCC region is helping raise the bar when it comes to customer experience. He stated that the pressure is on for potential rivals, and he welcomes any challenge for Qatar Airways. He remains confident in Qatar Airways continuing to hold onto its market leading position in the future to outshine any competition.

He also underlined the ways in which digital innovation is helping drive organisational efficiencies, as the airline continues to announce exciting new routes in growth markets including China and India, further enhancing Qatar’s position as a gateway to the world.
