Qatar Airways captured the spotlight on the first day of the Paris Air Show, where it showcased the first of its aircraft fitted with its spectacular state-of-the-art and award-winning Business Class seat, Qsuite.

Qatar’s Minister of Transport and Communications, HE Jassim Saif Al Sulaiti, said: “I am very proud to see the national carrier of Qatar showcasing the unique Qsuite to the whole world as it continues to expand and innovate in every single way.”

Qatar Airways Group chief executive Akbar Al Baker stated:  “With this offering, we have set a new standard for the industry, one which demonstrates our continued commitment to providing the finest possible experience for our passengers. We look forward to the debut of Qsuite on our Doha – London Heathrow route this weekend.”
