Qatar Airways launches daily all-Business Class flight between Doha and London
Qatar Airways is the first Middle Eastern carrier to offer a daily all-Business Class service to London.
Qatar Airways has launched a daily all-Business Class service between Doha and London, as it continues to enhance its offer for Commercially Important Passengers.
The daily service – which will complement the airline’s current five daily flights to London Heathrow – will be operated by an Airbus A319 with a 2-2 seating configuration.
All 40 seats will recline into fully flat beds and every passenger will have access to the Oryx entertainment system, which boasts more than 900 entertainment options. Among the other amenities available will be SMS texting, and GSM/GPRS mobile services.
Akbar Al Baker, CEO of Qatar Airways, said: “Today’s announcement reaffirms Qatar Airways’ determination to continue its expansion drive by improving an already superior in-flight product.
“The airline goes to great lengths to consider passenger convenience and comfort at every step of their journey. The Doha-London Heathrow route is one of Qatar Airways’ most popular international routes and it was only fitting that we introduce an all Business Class service on this key route, where customers will also be able to benefit from our new Qatar Airways premium lounge in London Heathrow’s Terminal 4, and of course the Premium Terminal in Doha.”
