Qatar Executive, the private jet charter division of Qatar Airways Group, has plans to open new offices in Shanghai, China; Moscow, Russia; and London, UK later this year. And, for the first time since its establishment in 2009, it has undergone an audit on two international standards: IS-BAO, based on ICAO standards, and Wyvern Wingman, popular in the USA market, that also follows IS-BAO standard but dictates additional stringent requirements. The audits concentrated on, among other critical subjects, the safety management system (SMS) implemented in Qatar Executive as an operator.

Qatar Airways group chief executive His Excellency Mr Akbar Al Baker says: “Qatar Airways first announced the formation of a corporate jet subsidiary Qatar Executive at the Paris Air Show in 2009, as part of the airline's global growth strategy and continued commitment to the Middle East, and the global business travel community. I am extremely proud of where we are now, just 10 years later. Not only have we built a Qatar-based corporate jet operator, we are also expanding our presence globally, bringing our state-of-the-art aircraft to every corner of the world.”

Qatar Executive EVP Ettore Rodaro adds: “Qatar Executive has been experiencing 30 per cent year-on-year growth in the Asia-Pacific market, and with the imminent opening of our new Shanghai office, we will enhance our services to our existing clientele and further expand our brand to new customers who would like to benefit from our premium services. We are also very pleased with our two new certifications. We are fully invested in providing a safe, luxurious product to our customers all over the world, whether their journey with us is for business or pleasure, and we look forward to seeing what the next 10 year brings.”

Qatar Executive currently operates a fleet of 16 private jets, that includes five Gulfstream G650ERs, three G500s, three Challenger 605s, four Global 5000s and one Global XRS. In 2019 it is set to receive an additional five G500s, with one arriving in May and one G650ER being delivered in June.

The G650ER aircraft is the fastest ultra-long range business jet in the industry with a 7,500 nm range, industry-leading cabin technology and unparalleled passenger comfort. Qatar Executive is the world's largest owner-operator of this jet type.
