Gulfstream delivers fourth G650ER to Qatar Airways

Posted 6 February 2018 · Add Comment

Gulfstream Aerospace has delivered a fourth Gulfstream G650ER to Qatar Airways for its Qatar Executive commercial charter service.

With this latest delivery, Qatar Executive becomes the largest single owner-operator of G650ER aircraft in the world.

Gulfstream established a partnership with Qatar Airways when the carrier became the international launch customer for the Gulfstream G500 in 2014. Since that time, Qatar Airways established an agreement for up to 30 Gulfstream aircraft, a combination of firm orders and options that includes the flagship G650ER, the G500 and its sister ship, the Gulfstream G600.

“Gulfstream delivered the first G650ER for air charter operations in the Middle East to Qatar Executive in 2015,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. “At that time, Qatar was interested in introducing a new and enhanced level of service to its customers and determined that Gulfstream aircraft were the ideal choice to do so. We are proud to continue that relationship with this milestone and value the confidence Qatar Airways has in Gulfstream and our employees who design, manufacture, service and support these aircraft.”

“The demand from our customers for longer range private air travel continues to grow,” said Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive,  Akbar Al Baker. “Taking delivery of our fourth Gulfstream G650ER executive jet, making Qatar Executive the largest single owner and operator of G650ER luxury private jets in the world, means we can continue to meet this demand.” 

Qatar Executive’s G650ER service can connect Doha nonstop to Cape Town or Tokyo or New York to Doha. The G650ER has a range of 7,500 nautical miles/13,890 kilometers at Mach 0.85 and a top operating speed of Mach 0.925.

In the cabin, the G650ER features an award-winning interior design, 100 percent fresh air, the lowest cabin altitude in the industry and 16 large Gulfstream panoramic windows. Passengers can stay connected with internet, phone and onboard printing capabilities.
