QATAR EXECUTIVE EXPANDS ITS BUSINESS JET FLEET

Qatar Airways’ Private Jet Division Adds Third Bombardier Global 5000

Aircraft on Display at Upcoming Dubai Air Show

30 Oct 2013

DOHA, Qatar – Qatar Executive, the corporate jet division of Qatar Airways, has welcomed a new ultra-long haul Bombardier Global 5000 Vision to its modern fleet, following continuously growing demand for luxury tailor-made travel in the Middle East and worldwide.

Built for maximum comfort and speed, Qatar Executive’s new Global 5000 is one of the most outstanding business jets available in the sky, offering passengers more space, more cutting-edge technology and more performance than any other aircraft in its class. 

The new delivery brings up Qatar Executive’s wholly-owned all-Bombardier fleet to a total size of seven business jets, comprising of three Global 5000s, three Challenger 605s and one Global XRS.

The new Global 5000 Vision’s elegant design and unsurpassed performance represents a significant upgrade of Qatar Executive’s product offering for its most discerning customers.

Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer Akbar Al Baker said: “Our new Bombardier Global 5000 Vision perfectly matches the requirements of the global travelling elite, who are looking for maximum travel flexibility and refined tailor-made service. With its extended range, the jet delivers our customers to their final destination faster than any other aircraft in this class while they enjoy the perks which come along with travelling on a state-of-the-art executive jet”.

Qatar Executive’s Bombardier Global 5000 Vision features a spacious two cabin configuration with a separate galley, allowing discrete service and maximum confidentiality. The executive jet can accommodate up to 13 passengers, with seats that convert into fully flat beds with a well-appointed aft stateroom for optimal relaxation and privacy.

While the forward cabin allows sufficient space for up to eight passengers, with a four place conference table, the rear cabin has two single seats, a private aft lavatory, and a three person divan which can be transformed to a double bed.

The colour tone of the interior decor is made up of warm earthy tones, creamy beige leather seating and medium chestnut wood bestowing the cabin with a sense of elegance and sophistication.

Further the Global 5000 Vision features a state-of-the art entertainment and communications system, including iPods at every seat to control cabin features such as cooling, mood lighting and sound system, two large High-Definition TV screens, Blue-Ray DVD System, satellite telephone, printer capabilities and the fastest airborne Internet available.

A special dampening cocoon system significantly reduces the cabin interior noise, allowing high-net individuals, government leaders and top executives to work, sleep and arrive well-rested at their final destination.

With a flying speed of up to 950km per hour, and nautical range of up to 9,260km, the aircraft is capable of flying virtually anywhere in the world to many intercontinental destinations non-stop from Doha and other points in the Middle East.

No matter if it is a business trip from the Gulf to the Far East, or a holiday on a private island in the Indian Ocean, the Bombardier Global 5000 Vision easily reaches remote areas without having to stop for refuelling, ensuring a hassle-free and time-saving experience.
