Qatar Airways to Launch Daily Airbus A380 Flights to Guangzhou, China

Qatar Airways is to increase capacity on the Doha-Guangzhou route with the introduction of its flagship Airbus A380 on the route.

Guangzhou will be Qatar Airways fourth A380 destination, after London, Paris and Bangkok.

Daily flights on board the worlds largest commercial aircraft will begin 1 July 2016 from Hamad International Airport in Doha, Qatar, to Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, Mr. Akbar Al Baker, said, This year marks our eighth anniversary of operations in Guangzhou and we are delighted to celebrate this milestone by introducing our bespoke A380 aircraft, re-affirming our long-standing commitment to China. The Pearl River Delta region is one of Chinas most vibrant trade and travel hubs and we have witnessed steady passenger growth both to and from Guangzhou over the years. Passengers from Asia can now enjoy their entire journey on our luxurious A380 aircraft when they fly to popular cities such as London and Paris via our state-of-the-art Hamad International Airport in Doha.

Wider seats, lower noise levels, draught-free air circulation, and accurate temperature control are among the many advancements on the A380 that help keep passengers feeling fresh and comfortable during a long flight.

The 517-seat aircraft is spread across twin decks in a tri-class configuration of 8 seats in First Class, 48 seats in Business Class and 461 in Economy Class.

The First Class cabin features eight exclusive suites on the upper deck in a 1-2-1 configuration. Each seat features a 90-inch pitch with a fully lie-flat bed, 26-inch HD inflight entertainment screen and direct aisle access.

Qatar Airways Business Class cabin on the A380 features 48 seats on the upper deck in a 1-2-1 configuration, with an 80-inch full flat bed, 17-inch HD inflight entertainment screen and direct aisle access.

The upper deck also features a spacious inflight lounge offering First and Business Class passengers an escape from the typical airplane environment.

First and Business Class passengers can also look forward to an on-demand la carte service menu and Giorgio Armani amenity kits when flying with Qatar Airways.

The two Economy Class cabins on the spacious Qatar Airways A380 can be found on the upper deck in a 2-4-2 configuration and on the main deck in a 3-4-3 configuration. Each Economy Class seat is 18.5-inch wide with a 32-inch seat pitch.
