Qatar Airways has confirmed that it will operate the Airbus A350-1000, equipped with the airline’s new Qsuite, on flights to and from Changi Airport in Singapore from 1 November 2018.

The aircraft will also be introduced daily to Tokyo’s Haneda Airport from 1 January 2019.

The two cities will be the first of Qatar Airways’ growing Far East network to welcome the ultramodern A350-1000 equipped with Qsuite.

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.”

Two of Singapore’s triple-daily A350-900 services will gradually transition to the A350-1000 starting from 1 November 2018. The route is expected to be served entirely with the A350-1000 by April 2019.

Qatar Airways’ A350-1000 features 327 seats across two cabins – 46 Qsuite Business Class seats and 281 18-inch seats in Economy Class.

Business Class passengers will be treated to the Qsuite experience, featuring the industry’s first-ever double-bed in business class. Sliding panels allow passengers in adjoining seats to transform their space into private cabins so passengers can work, socialise and dine together during the flight.
