  • Airline to make its patented, award-winning Business class experience available on flights from the Windy City from 1 April, with Houston, Dallas and Los Angeles to follow
  • Announcement follows recent launch of Qsuite on flights from New York and Washington, D.C.

 Qatar Airways has announced it would introduce its revolutionary business class seat, Qsuite, on flights from Chicago starting 1 April. 

The move will allow even more travellers to experience the new standard of luxury, comfort, and customisation in international travel set by the airline, and strengthening its commitment to its gateway markets in the United States.

The introduction of the globally-acclaimed business class seat on Qatar Airways flights from Chicago extends Qsuite’s existing US presence at both New York City’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Washington DC’s Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD).

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive Akbar Al Baker said “Qsuite has already established itself as an unrivalled product, setting a new standard in business class travel in the aviation industry, and receiving global acclaim from industry leaders, international media, and, most importantly, our valued business class travellers. By building on the successful launch of Qsuite in both New York and Washington, D.C., we are now tremendously excited to bring this luxurious, one-of-a-kind product to the Windy City, enabling travellers departing from Chicago to experience this revolutionary product for themselves.”

Qsuite features the industry’s first-ever double bed available in business class, and customisable private cabins for up to four people, perfect for friends, families and business colleagues traveling together. With adjustable panels and movable TV monitors on the centre four seats, Qsuite provides the ultimate personalised travel experience that enables passengers to create an environment that suits their own unique needs.

The expansion of Qsuite to Chicago is part of Qatar Airways’ commitment to continuously revolutionise the passenger experience, enabling travellers to enjoy First Class amenities within the airline’s business class cabin. Qsuite will be fitted on the Qatar Airways Boeing 777-300 ER out of Chicago O’Hare International Airport, and will later be introduced on the airline’s state-of-the-art Airbus A350-900 aircraft on flights from New York City, the first U.S destination to feature Qsuite on this ultra-modern and fuel-efficient aircraft.

The expansion of Qsuite throughout the U.S. follows a triumphant year of award wins. Qatar Airways currently holds the title of ‘Airline of the Year’ as awarded at the prestigious 2017 Skytrax World Airline Awards at the Paris Air Show, where the airline received a host of other notable accolades, including ‘Best Middle East Airline,’ ‘World’s Best Business Class’ and ‘World’s Best First Class Airline Lounge’.

One of the world’s fastest growing airlines, Qatar Airways currently operates a modern fleet of more than 200 aircrafts flying to business and leisure destinations across six continents. As part of its continued expansion plans, the airline also recently commenced services to both Chiang Mai and Pattaya, Thailand; Penang, Malaysia and Canberra, Australia. The airline plans to launch a host of new destinations in 2018-19, including London, Gatwick and Cardiff, United Kingdom; Lisbon, Portugal; Tallinn, Estonia; Valletta, Malta; Cebu and Davao, Philippines; Langkawi, Malaysia; Da Nang, Vietnam; Bodrum, Antalya and Hatay, Turkey; Mykonos, Greece and Málaga, Spain.
