Qatar Executive Receives First of 30 New Gulfstream Business Jets

Qatar Executive, Qatar Airways’ corporate jet division, has taken delivery of its first Gulfstream G650ER.

The aircraft is the first of an order for up to 30 new business jets, including Gulfstream’s all-new G500 and G600, for which Qatar Executive is the global launch customer.

 The initial Qatar Executive order was for 20 Gulfstream aircraft, which was increased by another 10 aircraft at the last EBACE exhibition in Geneva in May 2015.

 “We take immense pride in welcoming the first Gulfstream G650ER, the fastest ultra-long-range business jet in the world, as it joins our modern and dynamic Qatar Executive fleet, Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, Mr. Akbar Al Baker. “Qatar Executive demands nothing less than the best for its discerning passengers and the G650ER, as the technologically most advanced business jet available in the market, enables us to offer a superior product to our valued customers.”

The Qatar Executive G650ER aircraft can fly non-stop from the Middle East to North America or from destinations in Asia to Africa.

The G650ER’s cabin features large windows, satellite communications, high-speed internet and wireless local area network, which allows guests to use the jet as an “office in the sky”.

The Gulfstream’s Cabin Management System further enables passengers to control a wide range of cabin features such as the window shades, lighting, cooling and the vast entertainment options.

Qatar Executive’s ultra-long range G650ER has a two cabin configuration and a capacity for up to 13 passengers. Seats convert into fully-flat beds so that seven guests can easily sleep on board. The aft cabin features a comfortable three-seat divan made of the finest woollen fabrics by Loro Piana.

Further stand out features of the Gulfstream G650 are the fact it has the lowest equivalent cabin altitude of any business jet and the cabin air is replenished 100% every two minutes.

The G650ER can travel 7,500 nm/13,890 km at Mach 0.85 and 6,400 nm/11,853 km at Mach 0.90 – so customers can travel at 90% of the speed of sound.

Gulfstream President, Mr. Mark Burns said, “This delivery is the next step in our partnership with Qatar Executive as they bring the tremendous capabilities of the G650ER to their customers in the Middle East, and we look forward to the continued relationship as their Gulfstream fleet grows.”

The G650ER joins Qatar Executive’s existing long-range fleet of eight modern Bombardier aircraft, including three Challenger 605s, four Global 5000s, a Global XRS, and a 40-seat Airbus A319 All-Premium Class aircraft, all available for worldwide charter.
