FC Bayern München stars Corentin Tolisso and Lothar Matthäus were present at the announcement and presentation of the new Economy Class.

Qatar Airways announced to add a new direct flight to Malta, as well as to a list of other destinations along the introduction on new economy class experience, on the opening day of ITB Berlin, according to a press statement sent to Business Malta.

The airline announced to launch direct services to Lisbon, Portugal; Malta; Rabat, Morocco; Langkawi, Malaysia; Davao, Philippines; Izmir, Turkey and Mogadishu, Somalia in 2019.

Qatar Airways also unveiled its new Economy Class experience, which features additional leg room, faster broadband and new in-flight dining experience, called “Quisine”, featuring all new tableware with 25% larger main courses and 50% larger desserts.

The airline says it is going green with Quisine, as the new Economy Class proposition sees a significant increase in recyclable and biodegradable products and reduction in single-use plastic.

“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,” said Akbar Al Baker, CEO of Qatar Airways Group, at the announcement in Berlin. “We are also tremendously excited to be adding seven new destinations to our rapidly expanding global route network later this year, and to be able to connect our passengers to anywhere in the world they wish to go,” the CEO added.
