Qatar Airways is leasing four A350 aircraft from LATAM.
The A350 aircraft will begin revenue service tomorrow, March 2, 2017 operating the Doha-Munich route. The aircraft will be piloted by Qatar Airways pilots and on-board service delivered by Qatar Airways cabin crew.
The four A350 aircraft are in LATAM livery and have a LATAM seating configuration of 30 Business Class seats and 309 Economy Class seats. Qatar Airways-configured A350s offer 36 seats in Business Class and 247 seats in Economy Class.
Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, said: “In order to meet growing demand for our services, Qatar Airways has entered into an agreement with LATAM Airlines Group to secure up to four A350 aircraft for up to one year. The A350, for which Qatar Airways was the global launch customer, is the most technologically advanced aircraft in the skies today. Thanks to our strong partnership with LATAM, we are able to meet increasing customer demand in the short term, in an innovative way.”
In addition to the leased LATAM A350 aircraft, this week Qatar Airways took delivery of its 14th A350, bringing the total operating fleet of A350s to 15 currently.
