On the first day of ITB Berlin, Qatar Airways CEO Akbar Al Baker and the airline's new country manager for Germany and Austria, Günter Saurwein, introduced the airline's new luxury First Class seats that will form part of the tri-class configuration on the airline's new A380-800.

With a customised interior meeting the high demand specifications of Qatar Airways, the airline´s new A380s will be the first of 13 such aircraft on order.

Featuring a tri-class configuration of seating in First, Business and Economy, over two decks, the A380 is the largest passenger jet in the world and will provide a superior traveller experience to the airline’s customers.

The new First Class A380 seat, revealed by Al Baker at a ceremony attended by the Mayor of Berlin, Klaus Wowereit as Guest of Honour, features a 90-inch seat pitch, transforming into a fully flat bed, together with an expansive choice of entertainment options displayed on individual 19-inch television screens.

Al Baker said: “It is a landmark moment to see this fantastic new First Class A380 seat displayed here at ITB Berlin, the perfect event at which to announce such important innovations to our global audience. Operating on the Doha to London Heathrow route, this cabin will offer a new level of comfort for passengers travelling to the United Kingdom, who will also benefit from our Premium Terminal in Doha and the new Qatar Airways Premium Lounge in London Heathrow Terminal 4.

“We are committed to offering our customers the best possible experience when it comes to travelling with the airline, not only in terms of custom-built comfort features across all of our cabins, but with the continued expansion of our young and modern fleet.”
