This Saturday I will be releasing an exclusive video on the G700 experience, explained by Gulfstream Aerospace and Qatar Executive.
Qatar Executive welcome the arrival of the world’s first Gulfstream G700 jet aircraft to the State of Qatar, as part of a special demonstration by the manufacturer Gulfstream Aerospace.
Equipped with the all-new Rolls-Royce Pearl 700 engines, and an advanced high-speed wing design, the G700 is able to fly at a record-breaking speed (Mach .925) and range with outstanding environmental efficiency, promoting sustainable business aviation.
“As the global launch customer for this technologically-advanced jet, we look forward to welcoming the G700 into Qatar Executive’s fleet in 2022 and continuing to set new standards in air travel for years to come."Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker
"We are grateful for Qatar Executive's continued confidence in Gulfstream. With their partnership, we are introducing the tremendous performance capabilities and cabin comfort of the G700 to their customers, and we look forward to their first G700 deliveries."
Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream
Qatar Executive is the Global Launch Customer of G700
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, taking delivery of the very first aircraft off the Gulfstream assembly line in Georgia, US in 2022.
About Gulfstream G700
Gulfstream introduced the G700 in 2019 as the industry’s new flagship aircraft. It boasts business aviation’s most spacious cabin and can fly farther, and faster, than any other competitor in the business-jet industry.
Powered by two Rolls-Royce Pearl 700 engines, the G700 can fly 7,500 nautical miles/13,890 kilometres at Mach 0.85 or 6,400 nm/11,853 km at Mach 0.90.
The aircraft delivers the most spacious, innovative and flexible cabin in the industry; offering an extra-large galley with crew compartment, up to five living areas and a spacious bedroom compartment with en suite washroom.
The cabin I visited belongs to the Gulfstream company and is their demonstrator. Customers will have the option to completely customize the interiors.
Along with 20 panoramic windows and the Gulfstream cabin environment of 100 per cent fresh air, along with low cabin altitude and whisper-quiet sound levels, the G700 promotes in-flight health and well-being and greatly reduces the physical impact of traveling halfway around the world non-stop.
When I asked about the price tag, the Gulfstream company said it will cost $78 million for standard interiors. Custom-built interior will be upwards of that price tag.
About Qatar Executive
Qatar Executive is the world’s largest owner-operator of the Gulfstream G650ER and currently operates seven of the aircraft type, with eight more to be delivered within the next 10 months in addition to the planned deliveries of the G700 fleet.
