DOHA, Qatar – Qatar Airways has extended its Boeing 787 Dreamliner route network to Tunisia with the launch of services to capital city Tunis starting 17th February 2015.
The increase in demand in the region and the airline’s steadfast commitment to the Tunisian market has resulted in the introduction of the state-of-the-art Dreamliner on the daily flights between Doha and Tunis bringing an additional capacity of more than 92% compared to the A320 which was being operated on the route. Qatar Airways’ daily seat capacity to Tunisia has grown from 132 seats on the A320 to 254 seats on the 787 Dreamliner aircraft.
Qatar Airways is the first airline to commence with a scheduled 787 Dreamliner service to Tunisia. “We are proud to introduce the 787 Dreamliner to Tunisia, which will not only offer an increase in capacity to the route but will also redefine the in-flight experience of our passengers travelling to Doha and beyond,” said Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive Officer, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker.
“Our 787s provide a superior experience with specially designed interiors, spacious cabins and custom-made seats in both Business and Economy Class. We are confident that our passengers flying to and from Tunis will luxuriate in the enhanced travel experience onboard the Qatar Airways Dreamliner.”
Qatar Airways has 254 custom-made seats across its 787 Business and Economy Class cabins with specially designed interiors. Business Class is configured in a 1–2–1 layout with 22 seats, while Economy has a 232 seating capacity in a 3–3–3 layout. All seats in Business Class are reclinable with fully-flat beds.
The airline’s 787s are the world’s first fully connected Dreamliners with wireless facilities for passengers to remain in touch with friends and colleagues on the ground through the internet and SMS mobile texting service available across both Business and Economy cabins. The 787 Dreamliners complement the ultra-luxurious customer service and experience Qatar Airways promises to its passengers.
Daily flights from Tunisia connect via Doha to popular business and leisure cities in Qatar Airways’ global network including Doha, Dubai, Guangzhou, Shanghai, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur and more, with rapid transits being facilitated via Doha’s Hamad International Airport, the world’s newest aviation hub and a state-of-the-art facility that sets new airport benchmarks and redefines the passenger and transit experience.
Positioned at the edge of the Arabian Gulf, Hamad International Airport’s tranquil waterside setting provides a perfect backdrop for its stylish architectural elements, underpinned by advanced airport systems. It features two runways, among the longest in the world, a state-of-the-art air traffic control tower, a stunning passenger terminal with an initial design capacity of 30 million passengers per year and, over 40,000 square meters of combined retail, food and beverage facilities.
