Tuesday, August 28, 2018
The Peninsula -- Qatar Airways announced that the world's most technologically advanced passenger aircraft, the A350-1000, equipped with the airline's luxurious, award-winning Qsuite will be available on flights to and from Singapore's Changi Airport from November 1, 2018. The aircraft will also be introduced daily to Tokyo's Haneda Airport from January 1, 2019.
Two of Singapore's triple-daily A350-900 services will gradually transition to the A350-1000 starting from November 1, 2018. The route is expected to be served entirely with the A350-1000 by April 2019.
Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, Akbar al-Baker, said: "We are tremendously excited to bring the world's most technologically advanced passenger aircraft fitted with revolutionary Qsuite Business Class experience to our loyal customers in Singapore and Tokyo. The launch of the A350-1000 on these routes is a fulfilment of the promise we make to our passengers to provide them the finest experience available in the skies. We are confident that our A350-1000 flights and Qsuite cabins will be highly sought after, and look forward to bringing them to even more gateways throughout the Far East."
One of the latest additions to the Airbus family of twin-aisle, wide body jetliners, the A350-1000 offers 327 seats across two cabins, 46 Qsuite Business Class seats and 281 extra-wide 18-inch seats in Economy Class.
Similar to the A350-900 for which Qatar Airways was also the global launch customer, the high-performance A350-1000 boasts an advanced airframe with extensive use of composite materials.
Earlier this year, Qatar Airways revealed a host of forthcoming global destinations in line with its expedited expansion plan, including Tallinn, Estonia; Valletta, Malta; Langkawi, Malaysia and Da Nang, Vietnam.
