Qatar Airways has unveiled its new economy class experience and seven new routes.
The news was announced on day one of ITB Berlin, by the airline's chief executive Akbar Al Baker.
Also present at the reveal were FC Bayern München stars Corentin Tolisso (pictured sitting next to Al Baker), French international and World Cup winner in 2018, and Lothar Matthäus, former German international who captained his nation to victory in the 1990 World Cup.
Last year Qatar Airways signed a five-year partnership agreement with leading German football team FC Bayern München, making the airline the Official Airline Partner of FC Bayern München until June 2023.
Qatar Airways' new economy class experience features a seat with an innovative 19-degree recline system, additional legroom, dual trays, 13.3-inch 4 K widescreens and type 'C' fast charging USB port.
The airline's new in-flight dining experience 'Quisine' has larger menus and uses more rotable, recyclable and biodegradable products and reduction in single-use plastic.
Economy class passengers will also be able to enjoy improved connectivity, including up to 10 times faster broadband, as well as more than 4,000 entertainment options on Qatar Airways' Oryx One in-flight entertainment system.
Al Baker also revealed new destinations the airline will launch in 2019, including Lisbon, Portugal; Malta; Rabat, Morocco; Langkawi, Malaysia; Davao, Philippines; Izmir, Turkey and Mogadishu, Somalia.
