The Doha-based airline will unveil the new Business Class seat in a world exclusive ceremony to be held on the opening day of the exhibition, which runs from March 8-12.

Guests and visitors to ITB Berlin will be invited to relax in the new Business Class seat at the airline’s exhibition stand, it said in a statement.

"At this year’s ITB I look forward to sharing the revolutionary new patented Business Class seat with the travel industry and worldwide media, alongside many other new and exciting developments to our network.”
