DOHA, Qatar – Qatar Executive, Qatar Airways’ corporate jet division, took delivery of its first Gulfstream G650ER in a ceremony at Gulfstream’s headquarters in Savannah, Georgia, United States, last week.
The official event marked the beginning of a new relationship between the Qatar Airways group and Gulfstream, as Qatar Executive received the first of its order for up to 30 new market-leading business jets, including Gulfstream’s all-new G500 and G600, for which Qatar Executive is the global launch customer.
The initial Qatar Executive order was for 20 Gulfstream aircraft, which was increased by another 10 aircraft at the last EBACE exhibition in Geneva in May 2015.
The delivery ceremony was attended by Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker and Gulfstream President Mr. Mark Burns, who together revealed the brand new G650ER in Qatar Executive livery.
As the world’s largest and fastest civilian aircraft, the Gulfstream G650ER is one of the most sought-after business jets thanks to its phenomenal range, industry-leading cabin technology and unparalleled cabin comfort.
H.E. Mr. Akbar Al Baker said: “We take immense pride in welcoming the first Gulfstream G650ER, the fastest ultra-long-range business jet in the world, as it joins our modern and dynamic Qatar Executive fleet.
“Qatar Executive demands nothing less than the best for its discerning passengers and the G650ER, as the technologically most advanced business jet available in the market, enables us to offer a superior product to our valued customers.”
