Qatar Executive brings Bombardier Global 5000 business jet to Singapore

Qatar Airways’ corporate jet division, Qatar Executive, is showcasing its Bombardier Global 5000 business jet at the Singapore Air Show, the largest aerospace event in Asia.

With its aircraft participation at the five-day trade show, Qatar Executive reinforces its strategy to tap into up-and-coming markets, presenting its Qatar Executive product and service for the first time to the Asian audience.

Taking place until February 19th at the Changi Exhibition Centre (CEC) close to Singapore Changi Airport, the bi-ennial show hosts over 900 leading aviation industry companies, including industry professionals, global stakeholders and aviation enthusiasts from across 50 countries worldwide.

The Global 5000 jet, which is on static display for the entire show, is part of Qatar Executive’s wholly-owned Bombardier fleet of six long-range business jets.

Qatar Executive’s ultra-long Global 5000 aircraft has 13 seats and a comfortable two cabin configuration – forward cabin with four seats and a four place conference table.

The rear cabin has two single seats, a three-person divan and private aft lavatory. The aircraft is equipped with large monitors, surround sound and communications equipment, as well as Wi-fi connection, making it a true “office in the sky”.

Apart from the two Global 5000 jets, Qatar Executive also has three Bombardier Challenger 605 jets and a Global Express XRS aircraft – one of the most accomplished and luxurious business jets in the sky, making it the youngest fleet of business aircraft in the Gulf, with an average age of just over one year.

With its ultra-modern fleet, Qatar Executive is able to fly passengers throughout Europe, Africa, Asia, the Middle East, North America and even Australia, offering the ultimate jet-setting experience for those who prefer to fly at their own schedule in comfort.

Qatar Airways chief executive Akbar Al Baker said: “We look forward to showcasing our Global 5000 business jet for the first time at the Singapore Air Show.

“Knowing that the business aviation sector is experiencing significant growth in Asia, it is a great opportunity to present Qatar Executive’s top-end service for individual and flexible air travel to the travelling public across Asia.

“The Asian market continues to be at the forefront of wealth creation, minting millionaires at a faster pace than any other region in the world. And we are confident that the exclusive travel experience we provide onboard our luxurious jets, will exceed the expectations of the most discerned clientele also in this part of the world.”
