Qatar’s A350-1000 Is Coming to JFK

The Gulf carrier was the global launch customer for the A350-1000 earlier this year, and currently operates the aircraft on its Doha-London route.

Qatar Airways’ A350-1000 is configured with 46 of the carrier’s Q Suite business class seat, and 281 economy seats with an 18-inch width.

Qatar Airways currently operates two daily nonstop flights between Doha and New York JFK, served by A350-900 and B777-300ER aircraft.

Commenting on the news Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, Akbar Al Baker, said:

“We are thrilled to introduce the A350-1000 on flights to and from JFK, one of our key US gateways. The introduction of this next-generation aircraft to the route demonstrates our commitment to providing passengers travelling to and from the US with the most modern and technologically-advanced aircraft available, ensuring that their experience is second-to-none.

“We look forward to welcoming all passengers travelling to and from the US on board this spectacular aircraft.”

Cathay Pacific recently became the second carrier to take delivery of the A350-1000, and will roster the aircraft onto its new Hong Kong-Washington DC route from next month.
