Qatar Airways’ luxury jet arm Qatar Executive will have a leading presence at one of the year’s most prestigious air shows this week.

Qatar Executive’s state-of-the-art Bombardier Global 5000 will be on static display at the 5th annual Middle East Business Aviation Air Show being held at the new Al Maktoum International Airport Dubai World Central between 11 – 13 December.

The 13-seater Global 5000 is one of the most luxurious ultra-long range corporate business jets in the world. The centre piece of Qatar Executive’s fleet of six luxury aircraft, the Global 5000 features the widest and most spacious cabins among super-large business jets.

Said Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer Akbar Al Baker:

Qatar Airways is extremely proud of our executive jet fleet and we are thrilled to have our Global 5000 on display at MEBA. Qatar Executive will continue to invest in corporate jets, building the brand and fleet as the trend for long-haul private jet travel continues to grow globally.’

A record 7,000 visitors are expected to visit the show over three days – the first and only show dedicated to business aviation in the Middle East and the third largest in the world.

Established in 2009, Qatar Executive has significantly raised its service portfolio ranging from charter business to maintenance and FBO services, and rapidly turned into a lucrative business backed by the global expertise and track record of its award-winning parent company Qatar Airways.

Launched in 2009, Qatar Executive is a fixed-base charter jet operation headquartered at Doha International Airport.

It operates luxury jet services to Europe, Asia, North America, Africa, Middle East and Australia with a wholly-owned all-Bombardier fleet, consisting of three Challenger 605s, two Global 5000s and one Global XRS – the youngest fleet of business aircraft in the Gulf.

In November, Qatar Executive was honoured with the Best Business Aviation Operator of the Year 2012 award by the prestigious Middle East industry publication Aviation Business.
