Qatar Executive, the private jet charter division of Qatar Airways, will be exhibiting at Europe’s leading business aviation show EBACE in Geneva, Switzerland from May 24 to 26.
Doha-based Qatar Executive will use the annual event, which attracts more than 13,000 industry professionals, to promote its growing business aviation service portfolio ranging from its core competency of air charter, to aircraft management, airliner charter, maintenance and Fixed-Based Operation services.
A strong focus will be placed on promoting its brand new Gulfstream G650ER, for which deliveries started at the end of last year. In December 2015, Qatar Executive inducted the first G650ER – widely known as the world’s fastest ultra-long range business jet and technologically most advanced aircraft in its category – into its dynamic fleet.
In March 2016, Qatar Airways’ private jet arm received the second Gulfstream G650ER, further paving the way for Qatar Executive to become the largest Gulfstream operator in the Middle East.
Qatar Executive made headlines at last year’s show with a ground-breaking order for up to 30 Gulfstream aircraft, including the manufacturer’s all-new G500 and G600, for which Qatar Executive is the global launch customer.
Qatar Airways Group chief executive Akbar al-Baker said, “We look forward to promoting our latest products at EBACE, in particular our new Gulfstream G650ER, and we are proud to be able to offer our valued customers the very latest and best aircraft in the industry.
“Qatar Executive’s new G650ER features not only the most comfortable, productive and restful cabin in the business aviation industry, our customers are also guaranteed to receive the finest charter experience available in the market.” The Gulfstream G650ER aircraft have proven to be highly popular among travel-savvy high-net-worth individuals and corporate clients alike, due to the aircraft’s phenomenal capabilities in terms of range, passenger comfort and performance.
Qatar Executive’s G650ER aircraft features a two-cabin configuration, which seats up to 13 passengers. Seats convert into fully-flat beds, so that seven guests can easily sleep on board. The state-of-the-art business jet can easily fly non-stop from the Middle East to North America or from destinations in Asia to Africa – further, faster than any other jet of its kind – and is perfectly suited for those whose travel needs include flights halfway around the globe.
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.
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 per cent every two minutes.
The G650ER can travel 7,500nm/13,890km at Mach 0.85 and 6,400nm/11,853km at Mach 0.90 – so customers can travel at 90% of the speed of sound.
The two G650ER complement Qatar Executive’s existing long-range fleet of 10 modern business aircraft, including three Bombardier Challenger 605s, four Global 5000s, a Global XRS, and two 40-seat Airbus A319 all-premium aircraft, all available for worldwide charter.
