Qatar Airways has reaffirmed its commitment to US private aviation company JetSuite and its sibling company, JetSuiteX, in which it owns a minority stake.

Speaking during the Farnborough Air Show, group chief executive, Akbar Al Baker said, “Our investment in JetSuite and JetSuiteX is one that we are extremely excited about, and it is a privilege to display the JetSuiteX Embraer 135 at the Farnborough Airshow, providing spectators the chance to see this state-of-the-art aircraft up close. Qatar Airways and JetSuite share many of the same core values. We look forward to seeing JetSuite’s private aviation business continue to grow and flourish, and offer even more air travel choice of destinations on the US West Coast and beyond.”

Alex Wilcox, JetSuite founder and chief executive officer added, “On behalf of JetSuite we are thrilled to showcase our JetSuiteX Embraer 135 aircraft here on the world stage at the Farnborough Airshow. With the recent investment from Qatar Airways, we are looking forward to taking both our JetSuite private charter and JetSuiteX semi-private scheduled service brands to new heights and introducing these premium air travel experiences to new markets.”
