Qatar Airways Group CEO, Engr. Badr Mohammed Al-Meer, has revealed several major new developments in line with his vision for the future of the airline. The plan involves a number of modernisation,  including the introduction of new First Class cabins on some of its fleet.

Engr. Al-Meer announced his plans in an interview with CNBC – which was his first full interview since being appointed head of the airline group in November last year – where he also stated that he ‘welcomed any challenge’ from competitor airlines.

“Based on the demand from certain sectors, we see a high demand for First Class, and as such, have decided to introduce a newly-designed First Class cabin unique to Qatar Airways”, Al-Meer told the CNBC reporter.

“No one can develop a First Class cabin better than us – we are combining the experience of flying commercial and executive jets to develop something new. We are 70 to 80 per cent ready and are only finalising colours. We are hoping to announce it soon.”

The CEO also confirmed that the premium Qsuite set will debut at the Farnborough International Airshow in July this year.
