As launch airline for the Airbus A350 XWB, Qatar Airways made the headlines at the start of the year when it commenced operations of the world’s latest generation widebody airplane between Doha and Frankfurt on January 15.
During the press conference on 4 March, Qatar Airways updated the travel industry on the company’s latest developments; delivery of its second Airbus A350 XWB, its planned route expansion in Europe, Africa and Asia, as well as future investments for the airline. As always the journalists were given frank and detailed answers from the five-star airline’s GCEO, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker. Afterwards they were able to visit the Qatar Airways booth for more information and to experience the luxury of the airline’s first class and business class seats.
