Qatar Executive has entered a long-term agreement for pilot training services on the Global Express XRS and Challenger 605 with Emirates-CAE Flight Training in Dubai, UAE.
As anchor customer, Qatar Executive pilots will be the first to train on the new Challenger 605 full-flight simulator when it is approved by regulators in early 2012. Training on the XRS will begin this month and will include initial and recurrent courses as well as a range of CAE e-Learning general operating subjects.
"Private aircraft operated in the Arab world are set to triple over the next ten years so there will be a growing need for training and maintenance support as this sector flourishes," said Akbar Al Baker, ceo of Qatar Airways. "To meet this growing demand, it is essential for us to acquire the best possible quality training for our crew," he added.
Meanwhile, Qatar Executive has relaunched its web site with new features. Visitors to the site can see an in-depth view of all three aircraft types, as well as in-flight video clips, information on flight ranges, maps and cabin amenities, and an option to request quotes online, with a guarantee of quick responses from the 24/7 sales team.
Al Baker says: "One of our greatest strengths is that we operate the youngest fleet of business aircraft in the Gulf, and this superior positioning is reflected in the new-look web site."
The personalised service for passengers includes the convenience of booking an aircraft in as little as four hours before departure, access to premium airport lounges, and check-in ten minutes prior to take off.
