Gulfstream launches G550 & G600


Gulfstream has introduced an all-new family of business jets: the Gulfstream G500 and G600. The two new aircraft optimize speed, wide-cabin comfort and efficiency to offer customers best-in-class performance with advanced safety features.


Among the first customers is Qatar Airways, which signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. for the purchase of up to 20 Gulfstream aircraft.
The Memorandum of Understanding establishes the initial agreement for Qatar Airways to order up to 20 Gulfstream aircraft, including firm orders and options for the all-new, wide-cabin G500 and the flagship G650ER. The Memorandum of Understanding marks the beginning of a new relationship between Qatar Airways and Gulfstream.


Said His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, Group Chief Executive, Qatar Airways, “Qatar Executive has been on an accelerated growth path since its inception and is held to an exceptional standard of quality that is widely known by our global clientele. In order to keep pace with the future strategic growth plans of our private jet division, the fleet is being expanded with aircraft that meet the needs of our guests, providing a wide range of options.


The announcement of the Memorandum of Understanding for G650ERs and G500s signals a next step for Qatar Executive's relatively young and buoyant history."
