Qatar Airways' Q Suite

Qatar Airways will offer its latest Q Suite business class product on its recently launched Doha-Sydney-Canberra route from next month.

The Gulf airline launched daily one-stop flights to the Australian capital in February, and from July 1 will offer the Q Suite on up to four flights per week, increasing to daily from August 1.

Features of the Q Suite include a fully-enclosing privacy door, the option of a double bed configuration, and panels and movable TV monitors on the centre four seats allowing passengers travelling together to create a private suite.

The suite is currently available on selected B777-300ER, A350-900 and A350-1000 aircraft, on flights to destinations including London, Paris, New York, Chicago, Houston and Shanghai.

Business Traveller had a look at the seat during a media event at Heathrow last year.

Qatar Airways’ other daily service to Sydney is operated by the carrier’s A380 superjumbo.

Commenting on the news Qatar Airways Group CEO Akbar Al Baker, said:

“Since its launch, Q Suite has received tremendous attention globally, and we are delighted to introduce this revolutionary product on our Canberra and Sydney routes. With Q Suite, we have truly redefined business and luxury travel, and we are certain that the highly-adaptable and personalised product will be a much-welcome addition for Australian travellers.

“Qatar Airways now offers 4,376 seats daily to and from our five Australian gateways, providing Australians with the most technologically-advanced fleet of aircraft in the skies today, and demonstrating the importance of the market to our network.

“As we continue to grow in Australia, we are glad to also be contributing to the market by providing greater consumer choice with our award-winning cabins and services, and increased accessibility to global markets for businesses with our robust global network of more than 150 destinations.”
