Qatar Airways recently received its fourth state-of-the-art Gulfstream G650ER executive aircraft, the world’s fastest ultra-long-range business jet.
Qatar Executive, the carrier’s exclusive private charter service, is a leading provider of jet aircraft charter services around the world, which now operates a fleet of 12 ultra-modern Gulfstream and Bombardier executive jets. A further four aircraft are expected to be welcomed into Qatar Executive’s exclusive fleet later this year.
Chief executive, Qatar Airways Group, HE Akbar Al Baker stated: “The demand from our customers for longer range private air travel continues to grow. Taking delivery of our fourth Gulfstream G650ER executive jet means we can continue to meet this demand. With its hugely impressive range, incredible speed and luxurious interior, Gulfstream’s state-of-the-art G650ER offers a superior flying experience for our most discerning passengers.”
As well as having an impressive flying range of up to 7,500 nautical miles at Mach 0.85, the G650ER also has a top speed of Mach 0.925. Inside, the G650ER cabin features an award-winning quiet and spacious interior with wide seats, generous aisles, panoramic windows, internet and phone access, as well as the lowest cabin altitude in the industry.
President, Gulfstream, Mark Burns commented: “Gulfstream delivered the first G650ER in the Middle East to Qatar Executive in 2015. At that time, Qatar Airways was interested in introducing a new and enhanced level of service, and determined that Gulfstream aircraft were the ideal choice to do so.”
He concluded: “We are proud to continue that relationship with this milestone and value the confidence Qatar Airways has in Gulfstream and our employees who design, manufacture, service and support these aircraft.”
Qatar Executive’s now 12-strong fleet of technically-advanced private jets includes four Gulfstream G650ERs, three Bombardier Challenger 605s, four Global 5000s and one Global XRS aircraft. Qatar Executive’s service portfolio also includes aircraft management, airliner charter, maintenance and FBO services.
