Qatar flies first all-business class flight from Heathrow

Posted 15 May 2014 · Add Comment

Qatar Airways inaugurated its new all-premium daily service 'Business One' between Doha and London Heathrow today, becoming the first ever carrier to operate an all-Business Class service from London Heathrow.

The new daily service flies from Doha to London Heathrow Terminal 4 using an Airbus A319 configured with a single aisle, 2-2 seating configuration, offering 40 premium Business Class seats and the experience of what the airline said is likely to feel like a VIP jet.
The new additional flight will step up the frequency on the Doha to London Heathrow route from 35 to 42 weekly services and comes just before Qatar Airways commences operations on the Doha to London Heathrow route with its new A380 aircraft, which will operate on QR003 and QR004 from the 17th June.
Qatar Airways Chief executive officer, Akbar Al Baker, said: “The launch of our first all-premium product Business One reaffirms Qatar Airways’ determination to provide the best five-star service and comfort in the air for our Business Class passengers.
“The Doha to London Heathrow route is one of Qatar Airways’ most popular Business Class destinations and we continue to see increasing demand from passengers in Doha and those connecting onto London Heathrow from our network of worldwide destinations. Combined with the new Qatar Airways Premium Lounge at London Heathrow’s Terminal 4, and our Premium Terminal in Doha, our passengers can experience the very best Business Class service in the industry.”
The new A319 business class seat will have one of the highest specifications for Business Class travel of any airline, with wide seats that recline into fully flat beds and a state of the art Oryx entertainment system, featuring more than 1,000 entertainment options.
Passengers can also remain in touch with their friends and business associates on the ground through the SMS mobile texting GSM and GPRS service on board this aircraft.
