Qatar Executive is set to introduce a new Air Ionisation System on its G650ER aircraft. The active system is capable of eliminating potentially harmful pathogens and allergens, including bacteria, viruses, and mould spores. The eco-friendly technology has a minimum impact on the environment and adds an additional layer of hygiene onboard by eradicating volatile organic compounds (VOCs), visible smoke and undesirable odours.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, commented: “Qatar Executive is always at the forefront when it comes to introducing the latest safety and hygiene innovations. Enhancing the comfort and well-being of our passengers throughout their journey is paramount, therefore, we are pleased to be retrofitting our G650ER fleet with this cutting-edge Air Ionisation System. Qatar Executive will continue to adopt and introduce meticulous on-board safety measures which offer an unparalleled private jet experience each time."

Qatar Executive has already retrofitted two of its G650ER jets with the pioneering Air Ionisation System, and will continue installing the new device across the fleet within the next three months.



Last month, Qatar Executive’s flagship G650ER jet operated to and from Geneva, Switzerland using a high blend of Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF); reflecting Qatar Airways Groups’ commitment to working on its environmental sustainability goals. The ultra-modern aircraft was on display for spectators to tour and experience first-hand during the European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition (EBACE) 2022.

In November 2021, Qatar Executive took delivery of its eighth G650ER jet, which operated to Doha using drop-in Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF), marking another significant milestone for Qatar Airways Group and reinforcing its leadership in flying one of the most modern aircraft fleets in the sky.

Qatar Executive’s fleet includes 12 Gulfstream G650ERs - with three additional jets planned for delivery in 2022 - three Bombardier Global 5000s, one Bombardier Global XRS, one Airbus A319ACJ and another Airbus A319 Air Ambulance aircraft, making the current fleet 18 strong.
