The route, which is currently operated by an Airbus A320 with 132 seats, will be served by the state-of-the-art Boeing 787 Dreamliner, almost doubling capacity on the direct daily service to 254 seats. The introduction of the 787 Dreamliner will further enhance the onboard experience for passengers between the two cities, in addition to increasing capacity to 80 tonnes of cargo per week carried to and from Geneva.
“Qatar Airways is delighted that the high level of demand for travel to Geneva from our worldwide network warrants a higher-capacity aircraft equipped with our award-winning on board premium product, which will be introduced on the route,” said Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker. “The Boeing 787 Dreamliner represents one of the most modern aircraft in the skies and we look forward to welcoming passengers on board.”
The Boeing B787 Dreamliner combines the latest in aeronautic engineering with refined onboard hospitality in a spacious and light environment. Large electronically-dimmable windows create dramatic views and provide natural light, while full-spectrum LED lighting sets the mood and helps passengers to adjust quickly to changing time zones. A lower cabin pressure, improved air quality and optimal humidity also contribute to a refreshed feeling upon landing.
The Boeing 787 Dreamliner will begin services to Geneva from Doha from 01 July 2016.
