Qatar Airways’ JetSuite investment to drive company expansion

Qatar Airways

Qatar Airways reinforced its partnership with JetSuite at the recent Farnborough International Airshow, with plans to further expand the US-based private aviation company in order to bring even more air travel choice to passengers. 

The Qatari national airline took a minority stake in JetSuite and its sibling company, JetSuiteX, in April this year. Qatar Airways’ investment will boost the expansion of JetSuite’s fleet, as well as its ability to reach new destinations.

The JetSuiteX Embraer 135 jet is one of six state-of-the-art aircraft displayed this week by Qatar Airways at Farnborough Airshow. The luxuriously reconfigured aircraft offers 30 comfortable business class-style seats. It offers a soft private jet interior, along with extra soundproofing, power outlets at every seat and free messaging WiFi, offering passengers a premium and comfortable travel experience.

We look forward to seeing JetSuite’s private aviation business continue to grow and flourish, and offer even more air travel choice of destinations on the U.S. West Coast and beyond.”

Meanwhile, founder and CEO, JetSuite, Alex Wilcox said: “On behalf of JetSuite, we are thrilled to showcase our JetSuiteX Embraer 135 aircraft here on the world stage at the Farnborough Airshow. With the recent investment from Qatar Airways, we are looking forward to taking both our JetSuite private charter and JetSuiteX semi-private scheduled service brands to new heights and introducing these premium air travel experiences to new markets.”
