QATAR AIRWAYS is Bringing its Qsuite to Perth

The 2019 Skytrax World’s Best Airline Qatar Airways, has announced a temporary change to the aircraft its operating into Perth.

Between September and December 2019, Qatar Airways’ Perth-Doha services will be operated by a Boeing 777-300ER aircraft fitted with the airline’s award-winning Qsuite business class product.

“We’re really excited about this, even if it is only temporary”, says Lisa Byers, General Manager of The Travel Authority Corporate & Resource in Fremantle.

“Whilst the Boeing 777 lacks First Class and the A380’s spacious bar and lounge, our clients will love getting a taste of the Qsuite’s unique a face-to-face ‘party of four’ configuration and flexibility”, added Lisa.

Qatar Airways’ Qsuite was named World’s Best Business Class at the 2019 Skytrax World Airline Awards.

Clients of The Travel Authority enjoyed it first-hand with an exclusive invitation to experience the Qsuite on a day trip to Canberra in early 2019. Read more about that experience HERE.

Qatar Airways’ New Qsuite Impresses

The Travel Authority and Qatar Airways hosted a terrific day trip to Canberra for a number of our Corporate clients.

TTA’s clients were met at Qatar Airways Check in area E at Sydney International Airport Terminal on Friday, 22nd February 2019 at 6:30am for the short hop to Canberra. From there they were whisked away to the National Museum of Australia for a private one-hour guided tour followed by brunch at the stunning waterfront Museum Café.

The group flew to Canberra aboard Qatar Airways impressive Boeing 777-300ER featuring the airline’s revolutionary Qsuite Business Class product.

“It was a fabulous day, and a brilliant way to showcase this premium airline product to our clients”, said Sarah Bush, Director of The Travel Authority Group.

“The new Qsuite is brilliant. Its ability to cleverly and comfortably accommodate single passengers, couples, even families or groups of four travelling together is real innovation”, added Sarah.

The Travel Authority team conducted a vox-pop with their guests on the return leg to Sydney. Here’s what a couple of them had to say about their Qatar Airways Qsuite experience:

“I adored the Qsuite. I thought the attention to detail was wonderful. There’s just such a huge array of seating arrangements, the lay-flat position was exceptionally comfortable. I loved the extra touch of the signature Qsuite drink of lemon and mint tea, which was adorable. And I would just love to be flying them every other day of the week!”

“I’d have to say the Qsuites are absolutely stunning. They are well above my expectation, and I will definitely be going back to work and discussing with Directors about using this for their travels. The staff have been warm, professional and friendly. I can’t find a fault at this stage, so I will definitely be recommending it as an option moving forward with our corporate travel.”

I was very impressed. It was very roomy, actually First Class quality. The crew are amazing, very attentive, very friendly, and very accommodating.

On the return journey to Sydney, the group met the airline’s recently appointed Commercial Manager, Cassandra Kerr who was aboard.

Cassandra Kerr, Commercial Manager Qatar Airways; David Thompson, Manager – Sales & Client Experience at The Travel Authority; Sarah Bush, Director at The Travel Authority Group; and Lida Alevizos, Senior Sales Executive Qatar Airways.

“We were delighted to be able to introduce Cassandra to our clients. That simple act was a clear demonstration of the strength of our relationship with a great travel supplier like Qatar Airways”, says The Travel Authority Group’s Managing Director, Peter Hosper.
