Qatar Airways Deploys Boeing 787-8 to Geneva
Qatar Airways has announced it will upgrade its Doha-Geneva service from 1 July 2016, to become the airline’s second Dreamliner route to Switzerland after Zürich.
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.
Passengers travelling to Geneva from any of Qatar Airways more than 150 destinations benefit from a smooth and efficient transfer at Qatar Airways’ home and hub, Hamad International Airport.
The Boeing B787 Dreamliner combines the latest in aeronautic engineering with refined onboard hospitality in a spacious and light environment.
Business Class is configured in a 1–2–1 set-up with 22 seats, while Economy has a 232 seating capacity in a 3–3–3 layout.
