Qatar Executive has taken delivery of a Global 5000 Vision in response to what it describes as a continuous demand for luxury travel in the Middle East.
The addition expands the operator's owned Bombardier fleet to seven jets: three Global 5000s, three Challenger 605s and one Global XRS.
Ceo Akbar Al Baker said: “Our new Global 5000 Vision perfectly matches the requirements of the global travelling elite, who are looking for maximum travel flexibility and refined tailor-made service. With its extended range, the jet delivers our customers to their final destination faster than any other aircraft in this class while they enjoy the perks which come with travelling on a state-of-the-art executive jet.”
Aircraft features include a two-cabin configuration with a separate galley, allowing confidentiality and discreet service. Up to 13 passengers can be carried, with fully flat beds available for each.
While the forward cabin allows sufficient space for up to eight passengers, with a four-place conference table, the rear cabin has two single seats, a private aft lavatory and a three-person divan that can be transformed into a double bed.
The entertainment and comm-unications system onboard is said to be particularly impressive, including iPods at every seat to control cabin features such as cooling, mood lighting and sound system, two large HD screens, Blu-ray disk system, satellite telephone, printer capabilities and fast airborne internet.
