The charter operator and its parent Qatar Airways along with
JetBlue are investors in JetSuite
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.”

Entering its second decade, JetSuite’s is repositioning itself to offer a premium light jet experience, including guaranteed availability, fixed hourly rates and now helicopter transfers via Blade and integrated, full luxury travel agency services for its SuiteKey members and on-demand charter customers through a partnership with Embark Beyond.
As JetSuite continues its focus on offering a more premium experience, the company has launched a 10-hour promotional jet card to mark its 10th anniversary
As JetSuite celebrates the start of its second decade today, the company highlighted in a press release some of its recent changes previously reported by Private Jet Card Comparisons, writing, “JetSuite, Inc. is pleased to announce that it will celebrate its tenth year of operation in 2019 as the first and only premium experience in the light jet category.” It is also offering a 10-hour jet card promotion through January 18th in the light jet category (its Phenom 300). The normal minimum deposit is $100,000, and brings a $6,595 hourly rate, excluding 7.5% Federal Excise Tax (FET), so the promotion essentially allows new members to test the waters for about $30,000 less. The goal of the promo card is to show off some of the changes, according to the company.
