Qatar Airways is to launch an additional daily flight to Singapore from June 1, 2015, as part of its global expansion drive and to cater to the increase in passenger demand.
An airline communique said it will be operating the new additional flight and the existing two daily flights to Singapore with its third, fourth and fifth A350 XWB aircraft, commencing service in June, July and August 2015.
With this, Qatar Airways will become the first airline to operate the A350 XWB to Singapore and the Asia Pacific.
Global launch customer Qatar Airways’ first A350 XWB, which is one of 80 on order, is currently operating on the Doha–Frankfurt route. The airline’s second A350, joining the fleet later this month, will also commence operations on the Frankfurt route from March 1.
With the additional frequency and by operating the world’s newest wide-body aircraft to Singapore, Qatar Airways will further strengthen its position in one of the leading business cities in the Asia Pacific region as a world-class airline providing passengers with a premium travel experience.
The new daily flight will depart Doha at 20:25 hrs and arrive in Singapore the next day at 09:15 hrs, followed by a quick turnaround from Singapore at 10:40 hrs and returning to Doha the same day at 13:15 hrs.
“Qatar Airways is proud to be the first airline in the world to introduce the next generation A350 XWB aircraft to Asia, redefining the travel experience of our passengers,” said Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive Akbar al-Baker.
“We are also delighted to add another flight to this important and strategic route which will provide our Singapore-based passengers with even more options when they travel on business or leisure to key destinations in Europe and the Americas that include London, Paris, Frankfurt, Rome, Milan, New York, Chicago and Houston.”
Passengers will benefit from the new boarding experience achieved by the unique dome-design entrance with welcome light distribution, added the airline statement.
The business class cabin has 36 seats in a 1-2-1 configuration featuring an 80” full flat bed and 17” HD in-flight entertainment screen. The economy class features 247 18-inch wide seats in a 3-3-3 configuration, each with a 10.6” in-flight entertainment screen, and more space at shoulder level for passengers in window seats due to the vertical side wall panel design.
