Qatar Executive has received two of its brand-new Gulfstream G500 executive jets, which will provide passengers with a unique and refined flying experience.

Entering service for the first time in early 2019, the G500 jet is the most technologically advanced aircraft in Qatar Executive’s fleet. The state-of-the-art jet sets a new industry benchmark by offering one of the quietest cabins, as well as having the best cabin altitude pressure, allowing for unparalleled passenger comfort.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, said: “Welcoming the ultra-modern Gulfstream G500 executive jet into our fleet is a commitment to our Qatar Executive clients’ expectations. The truly advanced jet enables us to offer an unparalleled flying experience to our global clientele, who I am sure will be thrilled when flying on board this all-new aircraft.

“We are proud of the strong relationship we have with Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation and we look forward to receiving further jets from them in the future.”

President of Gulfstream, Mr. Mark Burns, said: “Gulfstream is proud to make the first international delivery of the Gulfstream G500 to Qatar Executive, and we look forward to continuing to help them build their Gulfstream fleet, which already includes our high-performing, class-leading flagship, the G650ER.”

The G500 is powered by the next generation Pratt & Whitney Canada PW800 engines, optimised for high-altitude, fast and long-range jets. In addition to being one of the quietest and most efficient jets in the industry, the aircraft’s remarkable range makes it capable of travelling non-stop from Istanbul to Cape Town; Los Angeles to London; and San Francisco to Tokyo. The cabin contains the most advanced technology including satellite communications, high-speed internet, the Oryx One entertainment system, 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 brand-new executive jet was first unveiled by Qatar Executive on the opening day of Farnborough International Airshow, earlier this year.

Qatar Executive currently operates a fleet of 15 state-of-the-art private jets, including five Gulfstream G650ERs, two Gulfstream G500s, three Bombardier Challenger 605s, four Global 5000s and one Global XRS. In 2019, Qatar Executive is set to receive an additional five G500s and one G650ER.

Qatar Airways is one of the world’s fastest-growing airlines, with a modern fleet of more than 200 aircraft flying to over 160 business and leisure destinations across six continents.

Qatar Airways was named ‘World’s Best Business Class’ by the 2018 World Airline Awards, managed by international air transport rating organisation Skytrax. It was also named ‘Best Business Class Seat’, ‘Best Airline in the Middle East’ and ‘World’s Best First Class Airline Lounge’.

The private jet charter division of Qatar Airways Group now operates 15 ultra-modern aircraft
