Qatar Executive adds Global 5000 Vision

In July Qatar Executive (Booth 415) will add a second Bombardier Global 5000 Vision to its fleet. The corporate jet division of Qatar Airways will get the new aircraft just in time to meet the increased demand of the summer season. The operator received its first Global 5000 Vision in late 2013, having earlier bought two Global 5000s. The wholly-owned eight-aircraft fleet also includes three Challenger 605s and a Global XRS.

Qatar Executive’s new Global 5000 Vision is outfitted in a two-cabin arrangement accommodating up to 13, with a separate galley. The forward cabin can accommodate up to eight passengers, with a four-place conference table, while the aft cabin is configured as a stateroom. All seats can convert to lie-flat beds. The aircraft offers a 5,000-nm range, placing all of Africa, Asia and Europe within non-stop range of the Gulf region.
