Qatar Executive, the private jet charter division of Qatar Airways Group, is officially the world’s first commercial service operator of the Gulfstream G500 jet, which embarked on its inaugural flight earlier this January.

Qatar Executive received two brand-new Gulfstream G500 executive jets last month, both received Operations Specification approval from Qatar Civil Aviation Authority, entitling them to operate commercially.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, HE Akbar Al Baker, said that the new G500 jet will offer a remarkable flying experience to many of their loyal passengers.

With two of these technologically-advanced aircraft in our fleet already, we are excited to be receiving an additional five G500s, to offer our passengers much more of an elite choice and flexibility.’

G500 jets are among the fastest and most advanced aircraft types in the Qatar Executive fleet. These state-of-the-art aircrafts set new industry benchmarks by offering one of the quietest cabins, as well as having the best cabin altitude pressure, allowing for unparalleled passenger comfort. In addition to being one of the most efficient jets in the industry, the aircraft’s remarkable range makes it capable of travelling non-stop from Istanbul to Cape Town; Los Angeles to London; and San Francisco to Tokyo.

The cabin also contains the most advanced technology, including satellite communications, high-speed internet, Oryx One entertainment system, wireless local area network and Gulfstream’s Cabin Management System, which allows passengers to use their own personal electronic devices to control audio, video, lighting, temperature, window shades and other cabin functions.

The brand-new executive jet was first unveiled by Qatar Executive during the opening day of the 2018 Farnborough International Airshow. For more information about Qatar Executive, visit You can also check for updates on Qatar Airways Group.
