Qatar Airways kicks off 2019 with a new customised ice cream called Pleasant Journey to inspire customers in creating their own memorable trips.



The special dessert is a fresh mixture of fruity blueberry and creamy and delicious cream crumble flavours that will be also available at Guss Damn Good shop from March. 

This year, travellers from Thailand can enjoy greater flexibility with 81 weekly flights that depart from its four Thailand gateways. The airline currently operates 49 weekly flights to Bangkok, 18 weekly flights to Phuket, and daily to Krabi and Chiang Mai. 

Travellers booking a flight for travel between now and May 20 can enjoy attractive Economy Class fares starting from Bt24,189 to Vienna, Bt24,739 to Zurich and Bt25,219 to London.

Business Class seats start from Bt98,329 for Amsterdam, Bt99,929 for Munich, and Bt102,019 for Venice. Passengers will also receive 50 per cent bonus Qmiles and Qpoints in Economy Class and double Qmiles and Qpoints in Business and First Class. 

With more spacious sanctuary options in the sky, passengers from Bangkok to Doha on QR831 will be also able to experience the Qsuite, the industry’s first-ever double bed available in Business Class. 

The unique and patented seat features private cabins for up to four people with privacy panels that stow away, allowing passengers in adjoining seats to create their own private room, a first of its kind in the industry. Adjustable panels and movable TV monitors on the centre four seats allow colleagues, friends or families travelling together to transform their space into a private suite, allowing them to work, dine and socialise together.

Qatar Airways currently operates a modern fleet of more than 200 aircraft via its hub, Hamad International Airport (HIA) to more than 160 destinations worldwide. Earlier this year, Qatar Airways revealed a host of forthcoming global destinations in line with its expedited expansion plans, including Tallinn, Estonia; Valletta, Malta; Langkawi, Malaysia; and Da Nang, Vietnam.

Qatar Airways was named “World’s Best Business Class” by the 2018 World Airline Awards, managed by international air transport rating organisation Skytrax. It was also named “Best Business Class Seat”, “Best Airline in the Middle East” and the “World’s Best First Class Airline Lounge”
