Qatar Airways Showcases G700

Qatar Airways unveiled its cutting-edge G700 business jet for the first time at the Paris Air Show held in June.

This remarkable aircraft will become an integral part of Qatar Executive, the luxury private jet charter division within the Qatar Airways Group.

Having become the global launch customer for the G700 back in October 2019, Qatar Executive has ambitious plans to integrate 10 of these exceptional jets into its fleet over the coming years. Notably, the G700 demonstrated its exceptional capabilities by setting a new city pair record during its flight from Savannah to Paris, achieving a remarkable speed of Mach 0.90 and completing the journey in just 7 hours and 19 minutes.

Furthermore, during its flight test programme, the Gulfstream G700 underscored its commitment to sustainability by conducting a flight fuelled by Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF), achieving a speed record of Mach 0.89 on the route between Savannah and Tokyo.

Then Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive Akbar Al Baker unveiled the new Gulfstream G700 in the presence of Qatar’s Minister of Transport Jassim bin Saif bin Ahmed Al Sulaiti, Ambassador of the State of Qatar to France Sheikh Ali bin Jassem Al-Thani, COO of HIA Engineer Badr Mohammed Al Meer, and President of Gulfstream Aerospace, Mark Burns.

The G700 is an unrivalled leader in its class, boasting sector leading speed, range, luxury cabin features, avionics, reliability, and safety. The business jet is powered by two Pearl 700 engines developed by Rolls-Royce and has a range of 7,500 nautical miles/13,890 km at Mach 0.85 or 6,400 nm/11,853 km at Mach 0.90, said the company.

 The aircraft’s bespoke cabins are meticulously crafted to ensure a sublime passenger experience which meets Qatar Executive’s most discerning customers’ standards.

The aircraft provides the ultimate level of flexibility through its spacious and innovative cabin design with an extra-large galley, crew compartment and up to five living or office areas. The passenger experience is enhanced by a revolutionary lighting system, a lower pressure altitude, larger windows and lower cabin noise levels. The state-of-the-art aircraft enables ultra-long-range flights between almost all commercial city pairs and can operate non-stop from Doha to New York, in 13-and-a-half hours and from Doha to Seoul in less than eight hours.

 Qatar Executive offers luxury jet services for worldwide charter on board the operator’s wholly-owned business jet fleet. The ultramodern fleet, includes 15 Gulfstream G650ERs, two Bombardier Global 5000s and two Airbus ACJs, including air ambulance VIP configuration with two medical stations, all of which operate out of their own fixed based operator service in Doha, Qatar.
