Qatar Executive, the corporate jet division of the Qatar Airways Group, has announced, it will add another new ultra-long haul Bombardier Global 5000 Vision to its modern fleet in July – just in time to cater for the increased demand for private jet travel during the traditionally busy summer season.
The announcement follows shortly after the operator’s recent acquisition of a brand-new Bombardier Global Vision at the end of 2013.
The new delivery will bring up Qatar Executive’ fleet size to a total of eight wholly-owned aircraft, comprising of four Global 5000s – among them two Global 5000 Visions – three Challenger 605s and one Global XRS.
To cater for the surge in private jet travel in the region and worldwide as well as following the exceptional response Qatar Executive received from customers towards its first Global 5000 Vision, the operator has taken swift measures to expand its fleet with yet another similar state-of-the-art business jet.
Built to please the most discerning customers, Qatar Executive’s new Bombardier Global 5000 Vision with its ultra-long range, superior cabin comfort and cutting-edge technology is proving very popular.
With a flying speed of up to 950km per hour, and 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 without having to stop for refuelling, ensuring a hassle-free and time-saving experience.
Qatar Airways chief executive Akbar Al Baker, who also heads up the airline’s corporate jet division said: “The Bombardier Global 5000 Vision is the private jet of choice for today’s travelling elite.
“With its extended range, maximum comfort levels and state-of-the-art technology, our latest aircraft caters perfectly to the requirements of leaders, who need to be connected to their global businesses around the world in the shortest amount of time.”
