Best Business Aviation Operator

Qatar Executive has been honoured with the Best Business Aviation Operator of the Year 2015 award by the prestigious Middle East industry publication Aviation Business. 

The Best Business Aviation Operator of the Year award is traditionally given to the company that consistently delivers world-class service and excels through key achievements and solid business strategies.

Qatar Executive, which also won the award in 2012 and was recognized as "Highly commended" in 2014, was honoured on this occasion for its remarkable growth in the past year, the significant boost of its aircraft management services, its geographical expansion into Asia and the completion of its new private jet terminal at Hamad International Airport, which is due to open at the end of the year. The year also marks the company's ground-breaking order of up to 30 Gulfstream aircraft announced in May 2015.

Mr Al Baker said: "To be recognized as the Best Business Aviation Operator of the Year is an outstanding achievement and a proud moment for the national airline's business jet division Qatar Executive.

"The business aviation market is very competitive and there are important players across the region, so winning this award is a great honour and we will strive to keep raising the bar."

Qatar Airways is one of the few airlines in the world to provide a private jet service as part of its premium product portfolio and, since its inception just over six years ago, Qatar Executive has evolved into a leader in exclusive air charter services not just regionally, but worldwide.

Today, the company operates eight wholly-owned Bombardier private jets, comprising three Challenger 605s, two Global 5000s and a Global Express XRS – all featuring spacious cabins, the latter in a two-cabin configuration accommodating up to 13 passengers. In addition, Qatar Executive offers larger travel groups an all Premium Airbus A319, with capacity for 40 passengers.

History

Qatar Airways first announced at the Paris Air Show in 2009 the formation of a corporate jet subsidiary – Qatar Executive – as part of the airline's ongoing robust global growth strategy, and continued commitment to the Middle East and global business travel community. Today, Qatar Executive offers worldwide on-demand travel services onboard its wholly-owned Bombardier business jet fleet. Qatar Executive's service portfolio includes Aircraft Management, Airliner Charter, Maintenance and FBO Services. 

Qatar Airways is the national carrier of the State of Qatar. Currently undergoing rapid expansion, Qatar Airways is one of the fastest growing airlines operating one of the youngest fleets in the world. Now in its 17th year of operations, Qatar Airways has a modern fleet of 129 aircraft flying to 134 key business and leisure destinations across six continents. 

On October 30, 2013, Qatar Airways joined the oneworld Alliance, becoming the only Gulf carrier to join a global airline alliance, enabling its customers to benefit from almost a thousand airports in more than 150 countries, with 14,000 daily departures.
