Qatar Airways flights from Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD) will now offer award-winning Business Class Qsuites, making the nation’s capital only the second U.S. destination to offer innovative and ultra comfortable flight experience.
Qsuites feature the industry’s first-ever double beds 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 Qsuites at ITB Berlin in March 2017 to outstanding global acclaim, and has set a new standard for luxury travel with this innovative product.
“Following the U.S. debut and warm welcome of the Qsuite in New York City, we are thrilled to kick off the new year by extending the outstanding offerings of Qsuite to our dedicated business and leisure travelers in the Washington, D.C. area. The introduction of Qsuite to Washington, a city we have served for the past 10 years, demonstrates our continued commitment to providing the utmost quality and service to our valued customers,” said His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive. “Since our launch a decade ago, Washington Dulles has seen some of the highest demand for our business class service across any of our other U.S. gateways, so bringing Qsuite to Washington was a natural choice. We look forward to continuing to revolutionize the way people travel to and from the U.S. capital.”
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.
