Qatar Airways is now flying its award-winning Business Class experience, Qsuite, on flights to and from Canberra, via Sydney. Take a look at just how luxurious the experience is. By Radhika Sikaria
The Doha to Canberra route operated by Qatar Airways—announced earlier in February this year—has just received an upgrade. The introduction of Qsuite on the route will begin with operations four times a week from July 1, while daily Qsuite service will begin from August 1. The flight makes one stop in Sydney, bringing Sydney residents a second daily service to and from the Qatari hub.
The feature is patented by Qatar Airways and offers the industry’s first-ever double bed available in Business Class, as well as private cabins for up to four people with privacy panels that stow away, allowing passengers in adjoining seats to create their own private room. Currently available on select Qatar Airways’ Boeing 777-300ER, Airbus A350-900 and A350-1000 aircraft, Qsuite also features adjustable panels and movable TV monitors on the centre four seats.
Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, said: “Since its launch, Qsuite has received tremendous attention globally, and we are delighted to introduce this revolutionary product on our Canberra and Sydney routes. With Qsuite, we have truly redefined business and luxury travel, and we are certain that the highly-adaptable and personalised product will be a much-welcome addition for Australian travellers.
“Qatar Airways now offers 4,376 seats daily to and from our five Australian gateways, providing Australians with the most technologically-advanced fleet of aircraft in the skies today, and demonstrating the importance of the market to our network. As we continue to grow in Australia, we are glad to also be contributing to the market by providing greater consumer choice with our award-winning cabins and services, and increased accessibility to global markets for businesses with our robust global network of more than 150 destinations.”
