Sydney has become Qatar Airways’ first destination in Australia to be served by the Airbus A380 aircraft.
The airline says it has achieved steady growth on the route since its inauguration with the Boeing 777-300 on March 1, 2016. The 517-seater A380 aircraft increases Qatar Airways’ current daily capacity by 44% on this route to meet the growing travel and trade demand.
Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, said: “Qatar Airways is proud to bring our flagship A380 to the extremely popular Sydney route so soon after the launch. We are pleased to be in a position to satisfy the demand for travel to this region and allow even more customers to enjoy our award winning service.” The, 517-seat capacity is spread across twin decks in a tri-class configuration of eight seats in First Class, 48 seats in Business Class and 461 in Economy Class.
