Qatar Airways has launched its Qsuite service in the Nairobi root, seeking to tap travellers to the US.
In its state-of-the-art Airbus A350-1000 featuring 46 seats in Business Class and 281 seats in Economy Class, the airline hopes to entice those connecting to the US, seeking comfort with the industry’s first in Business experience.
Patented by Qatar Airways, Qsuite features 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, a first of its kind in the industry.
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.
Qatar Airways Vice-President, Africa Mr. Hendrik Du Preez said: “With Qsuite, Qatar Airways has transformed premium travel by bringing a First Class experience to the Business Class cabin. Qsuite provides the ultimate customisable travel experience that enables passengers to create an environment that suits their own needs whether it is a mini office in the sky or a private candle lit dinner with a loved one. We look forward to welcoming passengers from Nairobi onboard and beyond to our rapidly expanding network globally.”
Qatar Airways offers double-daly services to Nairobi from Doha with 14 flights per week utilising its sustainable and fuel-efficient Boeing 787-800 Dreamliner aircraft on one frequency and the Airbus A350-1000 on the other.
Passengers on Qatar Airways from Africa can enjoy new baggage allowances ranging from 46 Kg for Economy Class split over two pieces and 64 Kg split over two pieces in Business Class. This initiative is designed to offer passengers more flexibility and comfort when travelling onboard Qatar Airways.
Qatar Airways was recently named Airline of the Year 2021 by AirlineRatings, also clinching Best Middle East Airline, Best Catering, and Best Business Class awards and became the first global airline in the world to achieve the prestigious 5-Star COVID-19 Airline Safety Rating by international air transport rating organisation, Skytrax.
