Qatar Airways is pleased to announce that its award-winning Business Class experience, Qsuite, is now available on flights to and from Mumbai and Bengaluru.

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 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 Mumbai and Bengaluru routes. With Qsuite, Qatar Airways has transformed premium travel by bringing a First Class experience to the Business Class cabin.

“We are thrilled to be offering our loyal customers this unique product, which is unlike anything they have experienced before. The features that Qsuite offers provide the ultimate customisable travel experience that enables passengers to create an environment that suits their own needs. We look forward to welcoming passengers from Mumbai, Bengaluru and points beyond onboard.”

Flights on the Mumbai and Bengaluru routes will be served by a Boeing B777 aircraft, with one aircraft flying daily to Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport and Bengaluru International Airport.

Qsuite is currently available on select Qatar Airways’ Boeing 777-300ER, Airbus A350-900 and A350-1000 aircraft. The expansion to Mumbai and Bengaluru follows the introduction of the product to various destinations around the globe, including London, Paris, New York, Chicago, Houston, Shanghai and Canberra.

Qatar Airways currently holds the title of ‘Airline of The Year’ as awarded by the prestigious 2017 Skytrax World Airline Awards. In addition to being voted Best Airline by travellers from around the world, Qatar’s national carrier also won a raft of other major awards at the ceremony, including ‘Best Airline in the Middle East‘, ‘World’s Best Business Class’ and ‘World’s Best First-Class Airline Lounge‘.

Qatar Airways currently operates a modern fleet of more than 200 aircraft via its hub, Hamad International Airport (HIA) to more than 150 destinations worldwide. Earlier this year, Qatar Airways revealed a host of forthcoming global destinations in line with its expedited expansion plans, including Tallinn, Estonia; Valletta, Malta; Langkawi, Malaysia; and Da Nang, Vietnam.
