Qatar Executive, the private jet charter division of Qatar Airways, has taken delivery of its second brand-new Gulfstream G650ER.

In time for the upcoming busy spring and summer season, Qatar Executive now has two Gulfstream G650ER aircraft ready for charter to meet the requirements of its affluent clientele, according to a statement.

“Qatar Executive’s G650ER aircraft can easily fly non-stop from the Middle East to North America or from destinations in Asia to Africa – further, faster than any other jet of its kind – and is perfectly suited for those whose travel needs include flights halfway around the globe,” the statement notes.

Qatar Airways Group chief executive Akbar al-Baker said, “We are delighted to welcome a second Gulfstream G650ER to our expanding private jet fleet and be able to provide our clients with more flexibility and an enhanced product portfolio.

“The G650ER allows our customers to reach the main business centres around the world in the shortest possible time, travel in superior comfort and take more luggage along than on other jets in this category.”

Qatar Executive received its first G650ER in December 2015 following an order for up to 30 new market-leading business jets, including Gulfstream’s all-new G500 and G600, for which Qatar Executive is the global launch customer.

Qatar Executive’s second Gulfstream G650ER features an identical cabin interior as the first G650ER. The aircraft has a two-cabin configuration and seats up to 13 passengers. Seats convert into fully-flat beds so that seven guests can easily sleep on board and the aircraft also provides a three-seater divan in the aft cabin.

“The G650ER’s cabin interior is kept in a classic-contemporary style, combining understated luxury and timeless elegance through a natural colour palette ranging from earthy tones of the walnut brown wooden veneers to the china-white leather seating and finest woollen Loro Piana fabrics with soft brown fishbone patterns,” the statement notes.

The G650ER’s cabin features advanced technology such as satellite communications, high-speed Internet, wireless local area network and Gulfstream’s Cabin Management System, which allows passengers to use their personal electronic devices to control audio, video, lighting, temperature, window shades and other cabin functions.

Further features of the Gulfstream G650 are the fact that it has the lowest equivalent cabin altitude of any business jet and the cabin air is replenished 100% every two minutes, the statement adds.

The G650ER can travel 7,500 nm/13,890 km at Mach 0.85 and 6,400 nm/11,853 km at Mach 0.90 – so customers can travel at 90% of the speed of sound.
