Qatar Executive Takes Delivery of Second Gulfstream G650ER

Qatar Executive has taken delivery of a second brand new Gulfstream G650ER.

 In time for the upcoming busy spring and summer season Qatar Executive now has two luxurious Gulfstream G650ER aircraft ready for charter to meet the requirements of its affluent clientele.

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

 “We are delighted to welcome a second Gulfstream G650ER to our expanding private jet fleet, and to be able to provide our clients with more flexibility, and an enhanced product portfolio,” said Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, Mr. Akbar Al Baker. “The G650ER allows our customers to reach the main business centres around the world in the shortest possible time, to travel in superior comfort, and to take more luggage along than on other jets in this category.”

Qatar Executive received its first G650ER in December 2015, following an order for up to 30 new market-leading business jets, including Gulfstream’s all-new G500 and G600, for which Qatar Executive is the global launch customer.

Qatar Executive’s second Gulfstream G650ER features an identical cabin interior as the first G650ER, which was delivered at the end of last year.

The spacious state-of-the-art aircraft has a two-cabin configuration and seats up to 13 passengers. Seats convert into fully-flat beds, so that seven guests can easily sleep on board, and also provides a three-seat divan in the jet’s aft cabin.

The G650ER’s cabin is not only comfortable but contains the most advanced technology including satellite communications, high-speed internet, wireless local area network and Gulfstream’s Cabin Management System, which allows passengers to use their own personal electronic devices to control audio, video, lighting, temperature, window shades and other cabin functions.

The interior cabin has 16 panoramic windows, all perfectly positioned so that every passenger has their own window.

Further stand-out features of the Gulfstream G650 are the fact that 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.

The G650ER complements Qatar Executive’s existing long-range fleet of one Gulfstream G650ER and 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.
