DOHA, Qatar – Qatar Executive, the private jet division of award-winning Qatar Airways, is preparing for the holy month of Ramadan and the busy summer season by adding a second all-Premium Class Airbus A319 aircraft to its luxurious charter fleet.
As Ramadan is a very popular time to perform Umrah in Saudi Arabia, the two 40-seat all-Premium Class Airbus A319 aircraft are expected to be well-received by large families, as well as travel agents looking to charter aircraft for group bookings. Umrah travel by charter aircraft is made more comfortable and convenient with direct-aircraft access via the Executive terminal and customised immigration and customs processing.
The Airbus A319 aircraft is perfectly suited for travel to Ta’if, Jeddah or Madinah from where passengers can continue the holy pilgrimage to Mecca.
In addition, the Airbus A319 aircraft can serve destinations around the globe with completely customised schedules, allowing for more flexibility and the option to reach remote or multiple locations in the shortest amount of time in ultimate comfort. Passengers are offered an exclusive private jet experience, award-winning service, spacious cabins, and world-class cuisine.
Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker commented: “We are delighted to offer our distinguished clientele these bespoke charter travel solutions, and to provide them with a singular, luxurious experience at the time and location of their choosing.”
The 40-seat aircraft with a single aisle, 2-2 seating configuration, and range of up to 3,700 nm/6,850 km, can easily connect destinations throughout the Middle East with major cities in Europe, Africa and South Asia.
The seats recline and convert into 79-inch long fully-flat beds, which come with elegant Italian Frette linen and duvets. Each seat further provides generous space for work or rest, and comes equipped with power outlets, WiFi, GSM services, USB port, audio sockets and LED lighting.
The two all-Premium Class Airbus A319 aircraft complement Qatar Executive’s existing long-range fleet of two brand new Gulfstream G650ER and eight modern Bombardier aircraft, including three Challenger 605s, four Global 5000s and a Global XRS, all available for worldwide charter.
