Due to increasing customer demand, Qatar Airways will boost its premium offering to Johannesburg increasing its Business Class seat capacity by nearly 40 per cent for the busy winter season starting this month.
The daily Boeing 777 wide-body service will now provide 42 Business Class seats and will complement Qatar Airways’ second daily Boeing 787 Dreamliner with its 22 Business Class seats between Doha and South Africa’s biggest metropolis Johannesburg.
The introduction of this Boeing 777 will offer passengers from Johannesburg, and those travelling to the city from Qatar Airways’ global network, an opportunity to experience the World’s Best Business Class. Qatar Airways was voted by millions of passengers at the Skytrax 2016 Awards for offering the World’s Best Business Class, Best Business Class Airline Lounge, and Best Airline Staff Service in the Middle East. These accolades are a reflection of Qatar Airways’ end-to-end superior service providing passengers with unforgettable flight experiences. Besides offering fully lie-flat seats with up to 3,000 options of in-flight entertainment, the airline provides one of the best dining experiences available at 30,000 feet. Business Class passengers can dine on demand, enjoying a number of signature dishes prepared by world-renowned chefs, and will also receive Giorgio Armani Fragrances and Beauty amenity kits to keep them refreshed throughout their journey.
Qatar Airways Senior Vice President for Africa, Middle East & Pakistan, Mr. Ehab Amin, said: “We have seen very strong demand for our Johannesburg service since the launch of this route in 2005, especially in the premium cabins. We celebrated our 10th anniversary in Johannesburg last year, and over the last decade demand for Qatar Airways flights has grown. Last year, we increased frequencies to the city from 10 flights-a-week to double-daily flights. The additional service to Johannesburg reflects the growing demand for travel to and from this popular destination.
“Doha’s Hamad International Airport is well positioned as a gateway to destinations across continents and our Business Class passengers from Johannesburg can experience the award-winning Al Mourjan Business Lounge while transferring at the airport to go to any Qatar Airways global destination. We look forward to welcoming even more travellers on board to enjoy the premium service on our flights.”
