qatar-airwaysQatar Airways will unveil the much-awaited new business class seat at ITB Berlin in March.

 

HE Akbar Al Baker, Group Chief Executive Qatar Airways Group said that the new seat would be across the fleet in B777s and A350s. They will also have new seat development for the B787s as this new seat can’t fit in the 787, he continued. The airline will receive 23 planes this year, all wide bodies, and its eighth of 10 A380s is due to be delivered in the next few weeks.

 

 

Qatar Airways’ network will expand to fifteen new destinations in 2017/18 and Al Baker sounded confident despite weakening demand and low oil prices. He added that with the kind of product they offer, demands are bound to generate.

 

 

Hamad International Airport is to press ahead with an expansion plan which will see a new Concourse F added to the existing terminal, swelling capacity to 65 million passengers annually. Al Baker said it has formed a steering committee with a view to completing it “as soon as possible”. In 2015, the airport handled 30 million passengers which is about 48 million less than Dubai.

 

 

Al Baker focused on the airport’s efficiency, calming nature and ability to contribute “to the overall journey”. HIA features 12 lounges, novel leisure facilities such as a pool and squash court, smart tech features, premium-branded duty free and cultural tie-ups with Qatar Museums.
