I am also very pleased to see the national carrier of the State of Qatar proceed with its expansion plans more than expected, with endless ambition.”

Al Baker said: “We are tremendously excited to showcase the first aircraft fitted with our revolutionary new Qsuite here in Paris. This product will transform premium travel by bringing a First Class experience to the Business Class cabin. With this innovative offering – which features the first-ever double bed in Business Class – we have set a new standard for the industry, one which demonstrates our continued commitment to providing the finest possible experience for our passengers.
