The Doha-based private jet charter operator is the largest G650ER operator in the world, with more of the ultra-long-range-aircraft being added this year
Qatar Airways private jet operator Qatar Executive, is set to introduce a new air ionization system on its Gulfstream G650ER fleet. The goal is to eliminate potentially harmful pathogens and allergens, including bacteria, viruses and mould spores.
The eco-friendly technology has a minimum impact on the environment. It adds an additional layer of hygiene onboard by eradicating volatile organic compounds (VOCs), visible smoke and undesirable odors.
Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive Akbar Al Baker, said, “Qatar Executive is always at the forefront when it comes to introducing the latest safety and hygiene innovations. Enhancing the comfort and well-being of our passengers throughout their journey is paramount, therefore, we are pleased to be retrofitting our G650ER fleet with this cutting-edge Air Ionization System. Qatar Executive will continue to adopt and introduce meticulous on-board safety measures which offer an unparalleled private jet experience each time.”
The Doha-based charter operator has already retrofitted two of its G650ER jets. It will continue installing the new device across the fleet within the next three months.
Qatar Executive is the world’s largest owner-operator of the Gulfstream G650ER.
Last month, one of its G650ERs operated to and from Geneva, Switzerland using a high blend of Sustainable Aviation Fuel.
The aircraft was on display for spectators to tour and experience first-hand during EBACE 2022.
In November 2021, Qatar Executive took delivery of its eighth G650ER jet. The flight was operated to Doha using drop-in Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF).
Qatar Executive’s fleet currently includes a dozen G650ERs, with three additional jets planned for delivery in 2022.
It also operates three Bombardier Global 5000s, one Bombardier Global XRS, one Airbus A319ACJ and another Airbus A319 Air Ambulance aircraft.
