Qatar Airways will launch the A350-1000 – equipped with the airline’s Qsuite – on flights to and from Singapore’s Changi Airport from November.
The aircraft will also be introduced daily to Tokyo’s Haneda Airport from January next year.
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 November 1st.
The route is expected to be served entirely with the A350-1000 by April.
