Qatar Airways keeps adding and adding to the routes on which it offers its highly-lauded Qsuites Business Class cabin and the latest destination to benefit from this expansion is Cape Town.
Qatar Airways Adds Qsuites To/From Cape Town
As things stand, Qatar Airways offers 7 weekly flights between Doha and Cape Town and it will be increasing the number of flights to 10 from 27 October.
The daily flight between Doha and Cape Town is currently operated by an Airbus A350-900 and the planned second flight (3x/week) will be operated by a Boeing 787-8.
Neither of these aircraft offers the Qatar Airways Qsuite Business Class cabin but, thanks to an aircraft swap scheduled for later this year, that’s going to change.
From 17 November 2019 Qatar Airways will be replacing the A350-900 which operates its daily service to Cape Town with a larger Airbus A350-1000 and, as all of the airline’s A350-1000s offer the Qsuite cabin, this swap guarantees Cape Town flyers the airline’s top Business Class product.
Here’s the schedule from 17 November:
QR1369 DOH 02:05 – 11:20 CPT (Daily)*
QR1371 DOH 07:50 – 17:05 CPT (Wed, Fri & Sun)
QR1370 CPT 13:15 – 00:25+1 day DOH (Daily)*
QR1372 CPT 18:50 – 06:00+1 day DOH (Wed, Fri & Sun)
*A350-1000 service with Qsuites
Here’s an ExpertFlyer seat map showing the Qsuites cabin being offered on the Doha – Cape Town route:
For the time being, the A350-1000 is only scheduled to operate on this route though to 28 Mach 2020 but, as that merely signifies the end of the winter season, there’s every chance that the Qsuites service will be extended once Qatar Airways updates its summer 2020 schedules.
