The Gulfstream G650ER

DOHA-BASED Qatar Airways will be showcasing three of its newest aircraft – the A350, A380 and Gulfstream G650ER – at the upcoming Singapore Airshow 2016, to be held at the Changi Exhibition Centre from 16 to 18 February.

“Qatar Airways is delighted to be participating again in this year’s Singapore Airshow, in an increased capacity. The three aircraft we will be displaying demonstrate our technologically advanced and fast-growing young fleet,” said Akbar Al Baker, group CEO, Qatar Airways.

“We have just celebrated our one year anniversary of A350 operations, and already we are embarking on another milestone with the world’s newest civilian aircraft, the Gulfstream G650ER, which many visitors will have the opportunity of seeing up close at the Singapore Airshow.”

The Gulfstream G650ER business jet only recently joined Qatar Executive’s fleet and is equipped with a two-cabin configuration that seats up to 13 passengers, or convertible to seven flat-beds.

Meanwhile, the A350 features customised interior settings with its business class cabin comprising 36 seats in a 1-2-1 configuration and its economy class cabin in a 3-3-3 configuration, allowing it to seat 247 passengers. Qatar Airways was the global launch customer for the A350 a year ago.

The largest passenger plane in the world, the A380 superjumbo, will also be on display to showcase its 517-seat capacity spread across two decks in first, business and economy classes.
