FIA2018: G500 joins Qatar Executive fleet

Qatar Executive, the private jet charter division of Qatar Airways Group, has unveiled its brand-new executive jet, the Gulfstream G500.

The G500 jet will be one of the fastest and most technologically advanced aircraft in the Qatar Executive fleet when it enters service later this year. The G500 cabin will also set new industry benchmarks as one of the quietest in the industry, as well as having the best cabin altitude pressure, allowing for unparalleled passenger comfort.

The all-new G500 aircraft will officially join Qatar Executive’s fleet by the end of this year, and will mark the beginning of an agreement that was initiated in October 2014, between Qatar Airways and Gulfstream Aerospace Corp.

Qatar Airways Group chief executive, Akbar Al Baker, said, “With its many advanced features, this ultra-modern aircraft will enable us to offer our global clientele unprecedented levels of service. The G500 also demonstrates our commitment to continuing to expand the Qatar Executive fleet, in line with our accelerated growth strategy, enabling us to exceed our clients’ expectations time and time again.”

Qatar Executive expects to receive eight of the 25 additional new aircraft it has on order between now and the end of 2019.

Qatar Executive now operates a fleet of 13 ultra-modern Gulfstream and Bombardier private jets, including five 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 fixed-based operation services.

The division also recently announced that it will be opening a new dedicated office in Shanghai in coming months to help meet passenger demand in the market and provide enhanced service to its clients in Asia. Qatar Executive also recently announced plans to open a new office in Moscow later this year.
