Qatar Airways, the Global Launch Customer of the A350 XWB, welcomed the second aircraft into its fleet as it commenced flights to Frankfurt on March 7, 2015. The introduction of the second A350 means the world’s five-star airline is now flying to Frankfurt double-daily exclusively with the A350 XWB.
The airline’s historic launch of the first commercial A350 XWB flight took place in January 2015 when the airline began inaugural A350 services to Frankfurt. Following the introduction of the second A350 XWB, the airline is now scheduled to accept delivery of three more A350 XWB aircraft in June, July and August of this year, all of which will be deployed on the Doha-Singapore route.
The A350 XWB service between Doha and Frankfurt has provided a substantial capacity increase on the route. The aircraft is comprised of a two-class configuration with 36 Business Class seats in a 1-2-1 configuration, featuring an 80” fully flat bed and 17” HD in-flight entertainment screen. Economy Class meanwhile, is comprised of 247 seats at 18-inches wide in a 3-3-3 configuration, with up to a 32-inch pitch.
The aircraft provides passengers with an unmatched travel experience thanks to its modern equipment and spacious innovative design with features such as a 10.6” in-flight entertainment screen, and an increase of space at shoulder level for passengers in window seats thanks to the taller, flatter side walls.
