Qatar Airways has announced plans to launch a new all-business class flight from Doha to London that will be reserved exclusively for their top-tier flyers.
When the daily service is launched in May, there will be no curtain dividers to separate the cabins as everyone aboard the A319 aircraft will be a business class passenger.
The single-aisle aircraft is configured to seat 40 passengers in a two-by-two configuration, and seats recline fully into flat beds.
Passengers will have access to the airline’s Oryx entertainment system, with more than 900 movies, TV shows, video games and music channels.
And they will also be able to keep in touch with people on the ground, with access to SMS mobile texting GSM and GPRS services.
While waiting for their flights, passengers booked on to the new service will have access to the Qatar Airways lounge in Heathrow, and the Premium Terminal in Doha.
Launching on May 15, the extra flight will operate a work-friendly schedule, leaving London at 9.55pm, arriving in Doha at 6.40am the following day.
The service, the first of its kind in the Middle East, is in addition to the five flights currently operated by Qatar Airways to Heathrow.
