Qatar Airways private jet fleet Qatar Executive (QE) has welcomed the arrival of the world’s first ever Gulfstream G700, with ten more to come. Not surprisingly, it turns out it’s rather good.
(August 31, 2021 – Qatar) – After reading this, you might want to forget aspiring to fly Business Class or even First-Class on any aircraft.
The famous ‘Residence’ on Etihad’s A380? That was so 2016.
If you’re truly serious about your aviation life goals, then this is your ride.
Like a G6? Forget about it. Say hello to the new Gulfstream G7(700).
This ridiculously sexy aircraft delivers the most spacious, innovative and flexible cabin in the industry, with up to five living areas and a spaciously insane master bedroom suite with en suite spa shower and washroom, of course.
The jet also features an all-new revolutionary lighting system that mimics circadian rhythms to reduce jetlag.
Oh, and if you feel like holding a mile-high meeting (or party) to remember, the optional six-seater dining room also doubles up as a conference space, where up to 19 passengers can be seated onboard.
Along with 20 panoramic windows and the Gulfstream cabin environment of 100 per cent fresh air, low cabin altitude and whisper-quiet sound levels, the G700 promotes in-flight health and well-being and greatly reduces the physical impact of travelling halfway around the world non-stop.
Equipped with the all-new Rolls-Royce Pearl 700 engines, the G700 can fly at record-breaking speed and range with outstanding environmental efficiency, promoting sustainable business aviation.
That’d be flying at Mach 0.925, just under the speed of sound.
Not surprisingly then, the new state-of-the-art aircraft is designed for ultra-long-haul flights and can operate non-stop from Doha to New York in around 12 hours.
Just to put that in perspective, flying on a Qatar Airways scheduled non-stop flight would get you from Doha to New York two hours later at just over 14 hours flying time.
And with a lot more privacy.
The G700 will be the latest addition to Qatar Executive’s state-of-the-art fleet of long-range and ultra-long-range aircraft.
The executive charter service provider has ordered 10 of the world’s largest business jets and will deliver the first aircraft of the Gulfstream assembly line in Georgia, the U.S., in 2022.
And the price tag?
With a list price of AU$104 million — it’s the most expensive jet on the market.
Time to buy a lotto ticket.
