Gulfstream Aerospace recently delivered the fourth Gulfstream G650ER to Qatar Airways for its Qatar Executive subsidiary. With this new delivery, the Doha-based operator becomes the largest jet owner-operator in the world.
Gulfstream established a partnership with Qatar Airways when the carrier became the international launch customer for the Gulfstream G500 in 2014. Since then, Qatar Airways has entered into an agreement for a delivery of up to 30 aircraft by Gulfstream. This is a combination of firm orders and options for the G650ER, G500 and G600. “The demand from our customers for longer-distance private flights continues to grow.” Mr. Akbar Al Baker, General Manager of the Qatar Airways Group said, adding, “By taking delivery of our fourth Gulfstream G650ER, we can continue to meet this demand.”
