Qatar Airways has unveiled new features to enhance Economy Class passenger experience at the ITB Berlin 2019 international travel and tourism trade show.

The airline has launched a new Economy Class seat that will offer a 13.3in 4K widescreen display and type ‘C’ fast charging USB port to enable passengers to charge their devices during the course of their journey.

The new seat is designed to have an innovative 19° recline system, additional legroom, and dual trays.

Passengers travelling in the airline’s economy class can also enjoy faster broadband services and more than 4,000 entertainment options on its Oryx One in-flight entertainment system.

“We invite all visitors to ITB to visit our stand, so that they can experience this unique product for themselves.”

Qatar Airways has also launched ‘Quisine’, a new in-flight dining experience in order to improve Economy Class service.

Quisine will offer new retail-style tableware and a menu with more choices and larger main courses, appetisers, and desserts to passengers.

Qatar Airways Group chief executive Akbar Al Baker said: “We are very pleased to reveal our new Economy Class experience here at ITB, proving that our commitment to providing the very finest experience extends to all of our passengers, not only those in Premium class.
