Bombardier is added to Qatar Airways Executive fleet

Doha, QATAR – Qatar Airways’ corporate jet division Qatar Executive has welcomed its first ultra-long haul Bombardier Global Express XRS to its growing fleet, one of the most luxurious business jets available in the sky.

The new delivery follows the recent announcement by Qatar Executive to add three new Bombardier aircraft to its fleet, including another Challenger 605 in July and a Global 5000 in August.

The new Global Express XRS’ elegant design and unsurpassed performance represents a significant upgrade of Qatar Executive’s product offering for its most discerning customers.

Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer Akbar Al Baker said: “The Bombardier Global Express XRS aircraft is the epitome of luxury and comfort and a leader in terms of customer satisfaction. We are pleased to be able to offer this top of the range aircraft to our most demanding clientele.

“With the wide choice of business jet variants, we are confident of being able to suit the different requirements of customers with a preference for fast, flexible and individual travel.”

Qatar Executive’s Bombardier Global XRS features a spacious two cabin configuration, accommodating up to 13 passengers, with seats that convert into fully flat beds with a well-appointed aft stateroom for optimal relaxation and privacy. The colour tone of the interior decor is made up of creamy beige leather seating and caramel brown cherry wood bestowing the cabin with a sense of elegance and sophistication.

Equipped with a large galley, fine dining can be served anytime by the attentive crew throughout the entire journey, together with a wide selection of hot and cold beverages.

With a flying speed of up to 950km per hour, and nautical range of up to 6,150 miles, the aircraft is capable of flying virtually anywhere in the world to many intercontinental destinations non-stop from Doha.

No matter if it is a business trip from Doha to the Far East, or a holiday in the Caribbean Islands the Bombardier Global Express XRS easily reaches remote areas without having to stop for refuelling, ensuring a hassle-free and time-saving experience. The plane features a unique system which allows refuelling in less than 15 minutes, which is unheard of for a jet of its class adding extra convenience for its passengers.

The super-large Bombardier Global Express XRS comes with cutting edge technology ranging from two large screens and two DVD and CD players to state-of-the-art communications equipment. Travellers can stay connected through satellite phones, high speed internet and are offered business amenities such as printer capability.

The new Bombardier Global Express XRS arrived just a few days before the start of EBACE – Europe’s leading Business Aviation Show which takes place in Geneva from May 17 to 19.

Qatar Executive is participating at the major business aircraft event to present its enhanced product portfolio to customers and business partners.

Part of Qatar Executive’s operational upgrade is also its new dedicated 6,300 square metre maintenance hangar at Doha International Airport, where the Qatar Executive maintenance team will also serve other business aircraft operators.

The Doha-based corporate jet operation, which began in 2009 with two Bombardier Challenger 605s, has received an exceptional response in the market and, with its expansion, is taking
measures to meet the spurring demand for business jet services in the Middle East and globally. 

Two more business jets – the Challenger 605 and the Global 5000 – will join the Qatar Executive fleet this summer, doubling its all-Bombardier fleet in just two years.
Qatar Executive has enjoyed popularity among celebrities of stage and screen, sports stars, as well as corporates and governments who appreciate the VIP treatment, prompt service and privacy this superlative way of flying offers.
The personalised service for passengers includes the convenience of booking an aircraft in as little as four hours before departure, access to premium lounges, and check-in 10 minutes prior to take off.


For further information and bookings, the professional Qatar Executive service team is available 24/7 on +974 4445 3800.
