Boasting a raft of new features, Qatar Airways has unveiled its enhanced, Economy Class product. 



Revealed at the world’s largest travel trade fair, ITB Berlin, the new product features more leg room, an ‘ innovative’ 19-degree recline system, dual trays, 13.3-inch touchscreens, 4,000 entertainment options and ten times faster wifi. 


A new inflight dining experience, ‘Quisine’, includes 25% larger main courses, 20% larger appetisers and 50% larger desserts, along with a more extensive menu and new ‘retail-style’ tableware. 


Additionally, the new Economy Class sees a greater emphasis on green initiatives, with more rotable, recyclable and biodegradable products and less single-use plastic.


“We are very pleased to reveal our new Economy Class experience here at ITB, proving that our commitment to providing the very finest experience extends to all of our passengers, not only those in Premium class,” Qatar Airways Group CEO His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker said at the unveiling. 


“Our new Economy Class seat, with its redesigned recline system and additional leg room, will ensure that our passengers in Economy Class arrive at their destinations feeling rested and refreshed.”


At the event, Mr Al Baker also unveiled seven new routes to Qatar’s global network across Asia, Europe and Africa.
