Qatar Executive shows off green credentials in Geneva


Qatar Airways corporate aviation division, Qatar Executive showed it is on-message for the sector’s sustainability push when it flew in its flagship jet London Luton Airport to Geneva for the EBACE show.

The Gulfstream G650ER was using a high blend of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) and is currently on display for spectators to tour and experience first-hand.

The Qatar Airways group has committed to invest in the most technologically advanced aircraft, and is collaborating with the wider industry to support the deployment of new technology, drive innovation and encourage the use of recognised SAF at an affordable commercial scale towards a more sustainable air transport.

Group Chief Executive, Akbar Al Baker, said: “We are excited to once again be back at EBACE, Europe’s leading business aviation show, showcasing Qatar Executive’s most technologically advanced aircraft. Having flown the G650ER to Geneva using SAF, reflects Qatar Airways Groups’ commitment to working on its environmental sustainability goals.” 

He went on: “Over the last year, Qatar Executive has witnessed exceptionally strong growth in response to increased demand from clients who require the very best, supported by the world’s most modern and efficient aircraft, and complemented by luxurious interior fittings and a world-leading service, both on the ground and in the air.”

The G650ER aircraft has a 7,500 nautical mile range, high speed performance and industry-leading cabin technology and unparalleled passenger comfort.

Qatar Executive is also the launch customer of the G7000 aircraft which can operate with 100% SAF.

In November 2021, Qatar Executive took an aircraft delivery flight, using drop-in Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF), establishing another milestone for Qatar Airways Group and reaffirming its leadership to fly one of the most advanced fleets in the sky. As the global launch customer, Qatar Executive is excited for its planned deliveries of the brand-new Gulfstream G700 aircraft, which are capable of operating using 100 per cent SAF. Equipped with the all-new Rolls-Royce Pearl 700 engines and an advanced high-speed wing design, the G700 is able to fly at record-breaking speed and range with outstanding fuel efficiency, promoting sustainable business aviation.
