Qatar Airways to showcase its latest generation aircraft at Singapore Airshow 2016

Feb 10, 2016

DOHA, Qatar – Qatar Airways today announced it will be showcasing three state-of-the-art aircraft from its fast-growing fleet at the upcoming Singapore Airshow from 16 to 18 February 2016. The three-time Skytrax Airline of the Year winner will be showcasing the A350, for which it was the global launch customer, and its superjumbo A380. Also appearing in Asia is Qatar Executive's newly acquired Gulfstream G650ER – the industry’s most advanced business jet.

Held biennially since 2008, the Singapore Airshow is widely regarded as Asia’s largest and finest airshow. To be held at the Changi Exhibition Centre, the 2016 edition of the Singapore Airshow will have more than 1,000 companies from over 50 countries in attendance, with mainstay events such as the exhibition, aerobatic display and static display, popular with both exhibitors and visitors alike.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, said: “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. 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 Doha-based carrier made its debut at the Singapore Airshow 2014 by exhibiting the Boeing 787 Dreamliner to hundreds of show visitors. This year, Qatar Airways’ participation extends beyond the static aircraft display, as the airline has introduced a bespoke visitors chalet to receive and extend its award-winning hospitality to esteemed guests, media and trade partners.

Qatar Executive’s Gulfstream G650ER recently joined the fleet and will be displayed at the Singapore Airshow. The business jet is the first of 30 latest-generation Gulfstream aircraft ordered by Qatar Executive, and is capable of flying non-stop from the Middle East to North America or from destinations in Asia to Africa – farther and faster than any other jet of its kind – and is perfectly suited for those whose travel needs include flying halfway around the globe. Highly sought-after for its phenomenal range, industry-leading cabin technology and unparalleled cabin comfort, Qatar Executive’s G650ER has a two-cabin configuration that seats up to 13 passengers – the seats convert into fully-flat beds, so that seven guests can easily sleep on board.
