Qatar Executive has firmed up an order with Gulfstream for three factory-new G650ERs. The order adds to the three G650ER aircraft already in service and available for charter with Qatar Executive and is part of a 30-aircraft sales agreement announced in May 2015 between the two companies. This order will make Qatar Executive the largest G650 operator in the world.

The economic outlook for the operator is favourable; it recently published its financial report for the 2016 financial year which showed a growth rate of 28 per cent.

Says chief executive Akbar Al Baker: “Gulfstream's commitment to delivering the world's finest flying experience has made it a world leader in private aviation. Its focus on performance, efficiency and innovation mirrors our own, and is the key to our growing and successful affiliation.”
