A press release by the airline says that the increase in demand for travel to and from the Hungary and the airline’s steadfast commitment to the Hungarian market will result in the introduction of the 272-seat aircraft on one of the double daily frequencies between Budapest and Doha.

Qatar Airways’ seat capacity from the Hungarian capital to Doha on this frequency will nearly double from 144 seats on the A320 to 272 seats on the Airbus A330 aircraft, bringing an additional capacity in light of enhanced passenger demand for this popular destination.

According to Qatar Airways Country Manager Eastern Europe - Central, Grisha Jenkov, “we are delighted to introduce Qatar Airways’ Airbus A330 to Budapest, which will not only offer an increase in capacity to the route, but will also redefine the in-flight experience of our passengers travelling to Doha and beyond.”

Business Class seats on the A330 recline into a 180-degree true lie-flat bed, providing superior sleep comfort and greater consistency with the Qatar Airways long-haul wide-body fleet.

The seats also feature six-way adjustable headrests, four-way adjustable lumbar support, a variety of personal stowage compartments, privacy dividers and fresh contemporary styling. The Business Class cabin also features 15.4” smart monitors and touch screen remote controller handsets, which also allow dual screen mode. The seats also offer PC Power, USB ports and connectivity for smart devices.

The A330 aircraft is fitted with onboard connectivity, providing the capability of internet and sending and receiving SMS and MMS messages. Economy Class seating will also provide greater comfort and more personal space, with individual 10.6” monitors and handsets.
