Qatar Airways has released this statement and photos:
Qatar Airways’ revolutionary, award-winning Qsuite officially landed at Washington, D.C.’s Washington Dulles International Airport on January 6, 2018, making the capital city the second U.S. destination to offer the innovative new Business Class product. The groundbreaking Qsuite was first introduced on flights to London Heathrow Airport and Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport and, most recently, made its highly-anticipated U.S. debut last month at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport.
Qsuite, a patented Qatar Airways product, is already fast collecting awards for bringing a First Class experience to the Business Class cabin. Qsuite features the industry’s first-ever double bed in Business Class, as well as privacy panels that stow away, allowing passengers in adjoining seats to create their own private room, a first of its kind in the industry. Qatar Airways proudly launched Qsuite at ITB Berlin in March 2017 to outstanding global acclaim, and has set a new standard for luxury travel with this innovative product.
Qatar Airways was recognized for its launch of Qsuite by receiving the ‘Best Airline Innovation of the Year’ award at the 2017 ULTRAS (Ultimate Luxury Travel Related Awards) held in London last year.
Qatar Airways celebrated 10 years of flying to the United States capital in 2017, with its first flight to Washington Dulles International Airport from Doha on July 19, 2007.
