Qatar New Economy Class Plus 7 New Destinations

Despite various rumours of a staggered formation to the seating, it is an upgraded version of the current economy class seating found on the airline’s fleet.

The new seats have a semi-fixed back shell so passengers can recline the seat from the take-off and landing position of 6 degrees recline to a maximum 19 degree recline without causing problems for the passenger in the seat behind.

The seat will also have new 13.3 inch 4K inflight entertainment screens and USB Type-C with fast charging capabilities.

The airline also introduced seven new destinations:

  • Izmir (3 frequencies per week)
  • Rabat (3 frequencies per week)
  • Malta (daily)
  • Davao (1 weekly)
  • Lisbon (daily) plus two new
  • Mogadishu (three times weekly)
  • Langkawi (Five times weekly)
