Qatar Executive, the corporate jet subsidiary of Qatar Airways Group, has officially welcomed two new Gulfstream G700 aircraft to its fleet, becoming the worldwide exclusive commercial charter operator of the aircraft.

Qatar Airways Group CEO Engr Badr Mohammed Al-Meer says: “We welcome the industry’s highest performance ultra long range business jet, the Gulfstream G700, to the Qatar Executive fleet. We are proud to enhance our existing fleet of 15 Gulfstream G650ER aircraft to include the pinnacle of business aviation excellence, and look forward to seeing our guests onboard soon to experience this technologically advanced aircraft.”

Gulfstream president Mark Burns adds: “Qatar Executive has been a valued Gulfstream customer for nearly 10 years. We are honoured to have it as our international partner for the launch and first deliveries of the all-new G700. We look forward to growing its fleet in the months ahead.”

The G700 is said to offer a superior flying experience with unrivalled design, technology, comfort and style. It has a spacious passenger cabin consisting of four individual living areas, including a dedicated private rear stateroom with a permanent fixed bed.

The bespoke cabins have been designed and crafted to meet the standards of Qatar Executive’s most discerning customers. Passenger experience has been augmented to include a revolutionary lighting system, the industry’s lowest cabin pressure altitude and natural lighting through 20 windows.

The G700 also prioritises passenger comfort with a whisper-quiet cabin, along with 100 per cent fresh air replenished every two to three minutes and an ionising system for the cabin air. This innovation ensures passengers arrive refreshed.

Qatar Executive expects an additional eight G700s to be delivered in the near future, with two more set to arrive within weeks. The new G700 fleet will enter full commercial service in June, and the operator is already taking advance expressions of interest from clients to charter the aircraft.
