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.
