Come November 1, Singapore will become the first Southeast Asian city to enjoy Qatar Airways’ A350-1000 aircraft, which comes equipped with the new Q Suite business class product.

Configured with a 1-2-1 layout, these business-class suites come with sliding “privacy doors,” as well as middle seats that convert into a double bed.

There are also quad blocs in the center section where four seats can create a co-working space for groups traveling together.

Starting from November, two of the city-state’s triple-daily A350-900 services will gradually transition to the A350-1000, with the route expected to be served entirely with the A350-1000 by April 2019.

The aircraft will also be introduced daily to Tokyo’s Haneda Airport from January 1, 2019 onwards.

Qatar Airways CEO Akbar Al Baker, said: “We are tremendously excited to bring the world’s most technologically advanced passenger aircraft fitted with the revolutionary Q Suite business class experience to our loyal customers in Singapore and Tokyo.

“The launch of the A350-1000 on these routes is a fulfilment of the promise we make to our passengers to provide them the finest experience available in the skies. We are confident that our A350-1000 flights and Qsuite cabins will be highly sought after, and look forward to bringing them to even more gateways throughout the Far East.”
