Qatar Executive on show

Two luxury aircraft from the Qatar Executive fleet will fly the Qatar Airways colours at Farnborough.

Group chief executive Akbar Al Baker said the company would be fielding the latest Gulfstream G650ER and the all-Business Class Airbus A319 as examples of the quality provided by Qatar Executive to passengers.

The A319 can accommodate 40 passengers in lie-flat 180deg Business Class seats in a 2x2 configuration. The seats, tailored in black leather with white stitching, are said by the company to take inspiration from automotive seating design.

On-board connectivity allows passengers to continue working throughout the flight without interruption.

The G650ER is the world’s longest-range private jet. The first of 30 on order joined the Qatar Executive fleet last December and can fly non-stop from the Middle East to North America or from destinations in Asia to Africa.

Qatar Executive’s version has a two-cabin configuration and can seat up to 13 passengers. Seats convert into fully-flat beds so seven guests can easily sleep on board.

Other features include the largest panoramic windows of any business-aviation aircraft, the industry’s lowest cabin-noise levels and good payload-carrying capability.
