LONDON – Qatar Airways’ private jet charter division, Qatar Executive, has introduced a new method to enhance the well-being and comfort of the guests on their flagship business jet, the Gulfstream G650ER.
The new air ionisation system will deter unwanted, harmful pathogens and allergens such as mould spores, viruses and bacteria.
This new technology is becoming more important in light of the pandemic, where health and hygienic standards are taken more seriously than ever.
Mr Akbar Al Baker Chief Executive of Qatar Airways Group: “Qatar Executive is always at the forefront when it comes to introducing the latest safety and hygiene innovations.”
“Enhancing the comfort and well-being of our passengers throughout their journey is paramount, therefore, we are pleased to be retrofitting our G650ER fleet with this cutting-edge Air Ionisation System.”
“Qatar Executive will continue to adopt and introduce meticulous onboard safety measures which offer an unparalleled private jet experience each time.”
Recently, Qatar refurbished two of its flagship long-haul business jet the G650ER with the industry-leading Air Ionisation System, which adds an additional layer of health security, filtering out volatile organic compounds (VOCs), visible smoke and undesirable odours.
The airline is expected to fit the technology into all of its fleets. This ensures consistency for customers wishing to charter out Qatar’s fleet.
With consistency at its core theme, Qatar Executive is the largest owner and operator of the G650ER, which is Gulfstream’s flagship product, and which is soon to be taken over by the G700.
The G650ER jet can fly up to 7,500 nautical miles, which means most travellers can travel from anywhere in the world non-stop or in some cases with one technical stop.
Qatar Airways flew its G650ER to the EBACE 2022, Geneva Switzerland using the Sustainable Aviation Fuel.
At the EBACE 2022 in Geneva Switzerland, Qatar Airways showcased its G650ER, where it is being flown using the Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF).
The usage of SAF shows commitment from the airline to become a greener and sustainable operator.
In fact, back in November 2021 when the welcomed its eighth G650ER, it too flew with the SAF from Savannah, Georgia to Doha. This is a huge step in going green in private aviation.
There are currently 12 Gulfstream G650ERs in Qatar Airways’ executive portfolio. Three more Gulfstreams are expected to join the fleet this year.
Apart from the Gulfstream, Qatar Executive also operates Bombardiers and Airbus. There are three Bombardier Global 500 series Bombardier Global XRS, a sole Airbus A319ACJ and another Airbus A319 Air Ambulance Medevac aircraft.
This means that as of today, there are 18 aircraft in Qatar Executive’s fleet. Making the airline one of the world’s strongest private jet operators.
Moreover, Qatar Executive will be the launch customer of the G700, the soon to be the flagship product of Gulfstream Aerospace. This shows that the airline is in a position to grow and will never stop to innovate and improve its quality of service for high-end clients.
