Qatar Air­ways has un­veiled its highly an­tic­i­pated and rev­o­lu­tion­ary new Busi­ness Class ex­pe­ri­ence to the world’s media and travel trade lead­ers. Ush­er­ing in a never-be­fore-seen stan­dard in Busi­ness Class travel, the cus­tomis­able pri­vate suites, named QSuite, in­tro­duce a host of firsts to Pre­mium Class travel, re­shap­ing ex­pec­ta­tions for global busi­ness trav­ellers.

Launched at ITB in Berlin, the world’s largest travel trade show, the unique and patented seat has been two years in the mak­ing. Its highly an­tic­i­pated un­veil­ing drew media from around the world and up un­til the re­veal had kept in­dus­try ex­perts guess­ing as to what fea­tures and de­vel­op­ments it would in­clude.

QSuite fea­tures the in­dus­try’s first-ever dou­ble bed avail­able in Busi­ness Class, with 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 al­low col­leagues, friends or fam­i­lies trav­el­ling to­gether to trans­form their space into a pri­vate suite, al­low­ing them to work, dine and so­cialise to­gether. These new fea­tures pro­vide the ul­ti­mate cus­tomis­able travel ex­pe­ri­ence, which enables pas­sen­gers to cre­ate an en­vi­ron­ment that suits their own unique needs.

Each seat is crafted with thought­ful and lux­u­ri­ous de­tails such as hand-stitched Ital­ian leather and satin rose gold fin­ish­ing, bring­ing an un­prece­dented level of lux­ury, pri­vacy and style to Qatar Air­ways’ Busi­ness Class of­fer­ing. To fur­ther com­ple­ment the cus­tomis­able on-board seat­ing ex­pe­ri­ence that pas­sen­gers will now en­joy, 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 deca­dent ‘dine on de­mand’ ser­vice, the new Busi­ness Class menu will now of­fer a se­lec­tion of snack ‘shar­ing dishes’ avail­able through­out the flight, al­low­ing trav­ellers to turn din­ing at 35,000 feet into a so­cial ex­pe­ri­ence. 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.

Recog­nised by global trav­ellers for de­liv­er­ing an ex­tra­or­di­nary pre­mium cus­tomer ex­pe­ri­ence, and true to its ti­tle of ‘World’s Best Busi­ness Class’ as awarded by Sky­trax in 2016, Qatar Air­ways will con­tinue to de­light pas­sen­gers with an ar­ray of spe­cial touches and ad­di­tional ser­vice en­hance­ments, in­clud­ing el­e­gant new chi­naware and cut­lery, sump­tu­ous soft fur­nish­ings and lux­u­ri­ous bed linens.

The re­cently an­nounced part­ner­ship with The White Com­pany to pro­vide ex­clu­sively-de­signed cot­ton Busi­ness Class sleeper suits and lug­gage brand BRIC’S to pro­vide be­spoke new amenity kits fea­tur­ing prod­ucts from Italy’s Castello Monte Vib­iano Vec­chio com­plete the re­freshed and en­hanced ex­pe­ri­ence await­ing Qatar Air­ways’ Busi­ness Class pas­sen­gers on board.

Qatar Air­ways also launched a com­pletely new next-gen­er­a­tion user in­ter­face of Oryx One, its award-win­ning 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 most of any air­line. The next-gen­er­a­tion 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.
