Qatar Airways plans to introduce a new business class seat during ITB in March, its CEO Akbar Al Baker told consumer publication Business Traveller.

The airline is adding 15 new destinations this year and next, and its boss said the new business-class seat will be designed for its Boeing 777, 787 and A350 aircraft. He also told the British magazine that the new Doha airport Hamad International will be expanded to more than double capacity to 65 million people annually.
