FEB 12, 2015: Qatar Airways has announced that it will participate in ITB Berlin for the seventh consecutive year next month and confirmed that it will showcase its unique A380 First Class seat and A350 Xtra Wide Body Business Class seat at the exhibition, which is being held from March 4 to March 8, 2015. This year’s participation in ITB Berlin is also significant for Qatar Airways as it marks the 10-year anniversary since the airline commenced its operations to Berlin, the German capital. “We are pleased to be at ITB yet again this year, sharing the airline’s latest updates,” said Akbar Al Baker, Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive. “This year, the airline is showcasing the A380 First Class and A350 XWB Business Class seats and we invite all participants and visitors to the show to visit us to have the opportunity to experience five-star comfort and hospitality. By adding the world’s only A350 XWB to our fleet, we have shown our commitment to bringing Qatar Airways’ passengers the latest technology and comfort in the skies. By the end of 2015, Qatar Airways will have five A350 XWB aircraft in service. Currently, our A350 flies to Frankfurt; the next A350 XWB to join the fleet in March will also serve Frankfurt, enhancing the A350 XWB service on this route to double-daily, with the next destination for this aircraft to be the popular Singapore route.” Qatar Airways, which is the Airbus A350 XWB Global Launch Customer, is the only airline to have ordered 80 aircraft of this kind. ITB Berlin provides airlines and tourism-related organizations the opportunity to showcase their new and unique services and products to a large international tourism and trade audience. It also provides an opportunity for all attendees to build new relationships with suppliers and clients.
