Qatar Airways Launches Qsuite on Nairobi, Kenya Route

Qatar Airways brings its award-wining Qsuite to Nairobi on board its state-of-the-art Airbus A350-1000 featuring 46 seats in Business Class and 281 seats in Economy Class. The addition of Qsuite to the Nairobi frequency will offer passengers especially those connecting with onwards journies to the US, an unparalleled level of comfort with the industry’s first in Business experience. 

Patented by Qatar Airways, Qsuite features the industry’s first-ever double bed available in Business Class, as well as 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 Vice-President, Africa Mr. Hendrik Du Preez said: “With Qsuite, Qatar Airways has transformed premium travel by bringing a First Class experience to the Business Class cabin. Qsuite provides the ultimate customisable travel experience that enables passengers to create an environment that suits their own needs whether it is a mini office in the sky or a private candle lit dinner with a loved one. We look forward to welcoming passengers from Nairobi onboard and beyond to our rapidly expanding network globally.” 

Qatar Airways offers double-daly services to Nairobi from Doha with 14 flights per week utilising its sustainable and fuel efficient Boeing 787-800 Dreamliner aircraft on one frequency and the Airbus A350-1000 on the other.

Passengers on Qatar Airways from Africa can enjoy new baggage allowances ranging from 46 Kg for Economy Class split over two pieces and 64 Kg split over two pieces in Business Class. This initiative is designed to offer passengers more flexibility and comfort when travelling on board Qatar Airways.

Qatar Airways was recently named Airline of the Year 2021 by AirlineRatings, also clinching Best Middle East Airline, Best Catering, and Best Business Class awards  and became the first global airline in the world to achieve the prestigious 5-Star COVID-19 Airline Safety Rating by international air transport rating organisation, Skytrax. 

This follows the success of Hamad International Airport (HIA) as the first airport in the Middle East and Asia to be awarded a Skytrax 5-Star COVID-19 Airport Safety Rating. This recognition provides assurance to passengers across the world that airline health and safety standards are subject to the highest possible standards of professional, independent scrutiny and assessment.  For full details of all the measures that have been implemented onboard and in HIA, please visit

With more frequencies being added to key hubs, Qatar Airways offers unrivalled connectivity to passengers, making it easy for them to change their travel dates or destination if they need to.
