[HD video below] Qatar Executive is aiming to grow its international footprint by targeting corporations and the fast-growing number of high-net-worth individuals in Asia.

Asia, predominantly China, is widely regarded as one of the fastest growing markets for business jet services today.

 "We see great potential in Asia for our charter services among business travellers and private individuals alike, said Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, Mr. Akbar Al Baker. "As Asian corporations continue to expand their businesses, they are looking for the most convenient and efficient means of travel to spur their international corporate growth. The Qatar Executive fleet of ultra and long-range business jets hence provide them with a key transportation means and also greater flexibility in meeting their regional and global business travel needs, no matter how complex they are."

To meet the requirements of the new target market, Qatar Executive has, adjusted its inflight experience to match the taste of the Asian executive and private traveller. For example, customers can request to be served by Mandarin and Cantonese-speaking VIP cabin attendants, who are familiar with local customs and etiquette.

On board Qatar Executive's fleet, guests can enjoy local cuisine, which they can personally choose prior to the flight or create a menu individually selected for each guest.

Executive Vice President of Qatar Executive, David Edwards, said, "The Asian travelling elite expects nothing less than the best aircraft in terms of range, performance and technology, combined with luxurious cabin design and refined personalised service. At Qatar Executive we offer all of this and the customer response towards our product has been extremely positive since we started operating in the region."

Today, Qatar Executive has Bombardier Global 5000 aircraft stationed in Hong Kong and Macau. From there, the operator also serves neighbouring destinations such as Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand and Malaysia.

The elegant business jet is wholly-owned by Qatar Airways, allowing for immediate bookings to be made, without customers having to wait for owner approvals as it is often the case with managed aircraft.

The Global 5000 jet is able to fly non-stop from Hong Kong to Djibouti or from Jakarta to destinations such as Dubai or Mombasa and offers a two-cabin configuration which allows for seven passengers to sleep comfortably.

Since its inception almost six years ago, Qatar Executive has seen rapid growth and is currently flying a fleet of eight business jets, which can reach most destinations in the world non-stop.

Recently Qatar Executive made the ground-breaking announcement to purchase up to 20 Gulfstream aircraft, including the manufacturer's all-new G500 and the G650ER.

In addition, Qatar Executive received a 40-seat Airbus A319 All-Premium Class aircraft in February, which is also available for worldwide charter for larger groups.
