Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive Akbar Al Baker, said it is only fitting to introduce Qsuite on their flights to Shanghai as the destination is their first gateway to China. Their flights to Shanghai commenced in October 2003.

With Qsuite, we have redefined industry norms and have truly revolutionised Business Class travel by offering passengers a First Class experience in a Business Class cabin, bringing unparalleled inflight comfort, luxury and style to our discerning customers.’

Patented by Qatar Airways, Qsuite features the industry’s first-ever double bed available in Business Class, and private cabins for up to four people with privacy panels that stow away, allowing passengers in adjoining seats to create their own private room, a first of its kind in the industry.

Adjustable panels and movable TV monitors on the centre four seats also allow colleagues, friends and 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 that enables passengers to create an environment that suits their own needs.

Earlier this month, Qatar Airways won a Crystal Cabin Award for ‘Best Cabin Concept‘ in recognition of Qsuite’s innovative design. The award, announced at the Aircraft Interiors Exposition that took place in Hamburg, Germany, was decided by a jury of 28 international experts to distinguish pioneering on-board innovation by airlines.
