Qatar Airways today announced a partnership with Bentley Sydney and Royale Limousines that will see premium passengers experience the ultimate in door-to-door luxury travel.
To celebrate the recent introduction of Qatar Airways first A380 service in Sydney, the partnership will offer select Qatar Airways Business and First Class passengers travelling on the A380, a unique once-in-a-lifetime experience to be chauffeured in a luxuriousBentley Mulsanne provided by Bentley Sydney.
The Bentley Mulsanne, a flagship model within the Bentley range, represents the ultimate expression of performance and luxury. Each Mulsanne is handcrafted in England, taking around 400 hours for a team of highly skilled artisans to build from ‘the ground up’.
Specially fitted with Qatar number plates and in the colour palette of the brand, the two Bentley Mulsanne vehicles have been transferring passengers to Sydney Airport from mid-October until late November 2016 in style and comfort.
Speaking about the partnership, Qatar Airways Country Manager for Australasia, Mr. Adam Radwanski, said: “We value luxurious travel at every touchpoint and are thrilled to partner Bentley Sydney. Whether it is in the air or on the ground, Qatar Airways and Bentley Sydney display the same high standards of luxury and comfort. This is a fantastic addition to our existing services and we hope our passengers enjoy this five-star door-to-door experience.”
Marc Webb, Dealer Principal at Bentley Sydney and John Bartolotta, Managing Director at Royale Limousines, both agreed the affiliation with Qatar Airways was fitting for Bentley and Royale, as all brands represent excellence in superior quality and service.
“Bentley Sydney and Royale Limousines are proud to partner with Qatar Airways on this exciting initiative to provide passengers with unparalleled luxury experiences. Qatar Airways passengers will begin their journey in style, relaxing in the sumptuous surrounds of the Bentley Mulsanne before boarding the A380.
“We look forward to providing this exclusive service to a discerning audience of travellers who want to experience the soul and sophistication of Bentley,” said Mr. Webb.
Sydney became Qatar Airways’ first destination in Australia to be served by the superjumbo A380 aircraft in September. The Sydney – Doha A380 service has seen a strong reception from passengers as it increases daily capacity by 44 per cent to cater for robust leisure and business travel demand to and from Sydney.
The A380 aircraft features an exclusive First Class Cabin with ultra-wide seats, which automatically recline into a flat bed, two passenger table dining, Missoni sleeper suits, flight slippers and amenities from Giorgio Armani. Passengers travelling in Qatar Airways’ award-winning Business Class can also enjoy private aisle access with the 1-2-1 seat configuration and a suite of connectivity options including onboard Wi-Fi, keeping them fully connected while up in the air.
