Qatar Executive has welcomed its eighth Gulfstream G650ER aircraft.
The aircraft operated from Savannah – Georgia, US, to Doha, Qatar, using certified Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF). Receipt of this new state-of-the-art jet further cements the private jet charter service provider’s position as the world’s largest owner-operator of the ultra-long-range Gulfstream G650ER.
The aircraft is one of the most coveted jets among the global travelling elite due to its remarkable range capabilities, industry-leading cabin technology, fuel efficiency and unparalleled passenger comfort. The Qatar Executive Gulfstream G650ER can fly at a faster speed for longer distances than any other jet of its kind, with its incredible 7,500 nautical mile range.
Qatar Airways Group chief executive, Akbar Al Baker, said, “We are proud to be the first global business aviation operator to receive a delivery flight using Sustainable Aviation Fuel. This reiterates our leadership and commitment to collaborate with the industry for supporting the deployment of new technology, drive innovation and encourage the use of SAF at a commercial scale, affordable and certified.”
“We are honored to deliver another G650ER to Qatar Executive and to do so while also demonstrating our commitment to sustainability,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. “We value Qatar Executive’s confidence in us and look forward to delivering on our promises as they continue to grow their Gulfstream fleet.”
Qatar Executive’s G650ER aircraft can operate non-stop from Doha to New York in approximately 13 hours and from Doha to Seoul in just over eight hours. Flying faster and further than any business jet, the G650ER is ideally suited for those whose travel needs include flights halfway around the globe.
