The Gulfstream G700: Qatar Executive’s Latest Aircraft

Qatar Executive customers will be some of the first to experience the landmark G700 jet.

By Toby Louch

Qatar Executive — the luxury private jet charter branch of Qatar Airways — has now taken delivery of Gulfstream’s latest flagship, the G700. As the official international launch customer of the aircraft, Qatar Executive will introduce four G700s into its fleet this year, with a further six to be delivered in the near future. 

When it comes to new aircraft, customers are looking for jets that can travel further, faster and at the highest level of luxury. The Gulfstream G700 is set to rewrite the rulebook of private aviation, reimagining what is possible in performance, wellness and sustainability

Throughout the rigorous testing process, the aircraft has set numerous records, such as flying from Savannah, Georgia (the location of the Gulfstream headquarters) to Paris in seven hours, 19 minutes, at a speed of Mach 0.9, a journey that would take a commercial aircraft nine hours. A further record was set between Savannah and Tokyo, utilizing sustainable aviation fuel.

As an unrivaled leader in its class, the G700 is 10ft longer than the previous flagship, the G650ER, the larger size offering more space and increased comfort. Powered by two Rolls-Royce Pearl 700 engines, the G700 has a range of 7,750 nautical miles at a speed of Mach 0.85. 

By taking ownership of the first G700s available, Qatar Executive is further establishing itself as an international leader in luxury private jet charter.

The interior

While the speed records are impressive, it’s the spacious and luxuriously appointed interior that separates the G700 from the competition. For Qatar Executive’s G700s, the cabins have been meticulously crafted to meet the exacting standards its customers expect. 

The spacious and innovative cabin design includes a large galley, crew compartment and the flexibility of up to five living or office areas. Passenger comfort levels will reach an all-time high aboard the G700. Greatly reduced cabin noise combined with a lower cabin pressure altitude ensures passengers arrive at their destination feeling well rested. 

Gulfstream states that the G700 has the lowest cabin altitude in the industry, greatly mitigating some of the adverse effects of travel. It’s also ‘whisper-quiet,’ greatly reducing the noise inside from the engines, and is replenished with 100% fresh, plasma-ionized air every two to three minutes.

Onboard, passengers will also discover Gulfstream’s new revolutionary lighting system. This allows passengers to shut the windows and simulate any period of the day. This is particularly useful for long-range flights as passengers attempt to avoid jetlag by altering their sleep schedule before they land.

The Gulfstream G700 also excels in the natural light department. If you ever spot a private jet with large oval windows, it’s sure to be a Gulfstream. On the G700, passengers will find 20 of these iconic panoramic oval windows, basking the cabin in sunlight and providing unbeatable take-off and landing views to create an inflight experience unlike any other.

Qatar Executives’ new fleet of Gulfstream G700s is looking to reset passenger expectations in both business and private aviation.

Its ultra-long-range capabilities also place non-stop flights like a 13-and-a-half-hour Doha to New York journey well within reach. The G700’s extended range ensures that almost all journeys between commercial city pairs are possible nonstop, eliminating refueling periods and improving the speed and efficiency of longer trips.

As the international launch customer of Gulfstream’s G700, Qatar Executive customers will be some of the first passengers globally to experience this impressive new aircraft. This addition to Qatar Executives’ already impressive fleet continues its rise as one of the finest luxury private jet charter services available. As it continues to offer its customers the finest level of service when they choose Qatar Executive for their private charter needs.
