Qatar Executive, the private jet charter division of award-winning Qatar Airways, this week unveiled a brand new stand at Europe’s leading business aviation show EBACE (stand #B089), which takes place from 29-31 May at Palexpo, Geneva, in order to welcome the hundreds of guests expected to visit and hear about its latest developments.
The division, the largest operator of Gulfstream G650ER aircraft in the world, has witnessed a dramatic surge in growth over the last year as it caters to a growing private, corporate and celebrity client base around the world with its wholly-owned fleet of luxurious business jets, featuring some of most technologically advanced aircraft in the sky.
Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, said: “We are delighted to once again take part in EBACE, Europe’s leading business aviation show, this year with a brand new stand at which to welcome our guests and highlight our rapid expansion plans. Over the last year, our private jet charter division, has witnessed significant growth in response to increased demand from clients who demand the very best, supported by the world’s most modern and efficient aircraft, and complemented by luxurious interior fittings and a world-leading service, both on the ground and in the air.”
The private jet division will also promote its growing fleet of G650ER aircraft, the world’s fastest ultra-long range business jet and the technologically most advanced aircraft in its category, which Qatar Executive first received in 2015 as Global Launch Customer. Qatar Executive is set to receive another two G650ER aircraft before end 2019, in addition to a further seven G500 jets. This will bring the Qatar Executive Gulfstream fleet to a total of 13 aircraft, out of a complete fleet of 21 state-of-the art jets.
Qatar Executive will also highlight its growing product offering across air charter services, aircraft management, maintenance and Fixed-Based Operation services, as it opens two dedicated offices this year in both Shanghai and Moscow. In addition, the division will speak of its growing markets around the world, specifically Asia, Russia and Europe, supported by a seamless and passenger focused service, and the reassurance the world over of a dedicated maintenance support unit.
The G650ER and G500 cabins are not only comfortable, but contain 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.
Qatar Executive’s G650ER aircraft, which can travel further and faster than any other jet of its kind, 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, while the cabin interior features a classic-contemporary style, combining understated luxury and timeless elegance.
Qatar Airways itself currently holds the title of ‘Airline of The Year’ as awarded by the prestigious 2017 Skytrax World Airline Awards. In addition to being voted Best Airline by travellers from around the world, Qatar’s national carrier also won a raft of other major awards at the ceremony, including ‘Best Airline in the Middle East,’ ‘World’s Best Business Class’ and ‘World’s Best First Class Airline Lounge.’
