Customers looking for ultra-long-haul, fixed-rate private jet programs with guaranteed availability now can compare Qatar Executive with NetJets and VistaJet
Despite its name and Doha base, the operator of Gulfstream G650ERs, G500s, Bombardier Global 5000s and an XRS has its eyes on U.S. and European customers
Not since the short-lived existence of Zetta Jet has there been a player that looked like it might be able to challenge NetJets and VistaJet on the world stage, at least when it comes to offering an ultra-long-haul, fixed-rate, guaranteed availability program.
Long a key operator in the on-demand charter market, The Diamond Agreement, announced Tuesday, gives Qatar Executive a fixed-rate, ferry-fee free, guaranteed availability option many travelers crave.

Qatar Airways last week announced an order for 18 Gulfstream aircraft during a ceremony at the White House. The order worth over $1 billion is for 14 Gulfstream G650ER and four Gulfstream G500 and will add to Qatar Executive’s growing fleet that currently includes six G650ER and four G500 aircraft.
Gulfstream executives had previously reported the order, however, the customer had not been disclosed. Flexjet had been mentioned along with Qatar Executive as likely buyers.
Qatar Airways Group chief executive, Akbar Al Baker said,
“Qatar Airways is very pleased to confirm this landmark deal with
Gulfstream. Our corporate jet division, Qatar Executive, goes from strength to
strength and this commitment to new orders will allow us to offer our bespoke
luxury service to even more passengers.”
