Qatar Airways and JetSuite Inc. plan to expand JetSuite and JetSuiteX as part of an effort to provide more air travel choices to passengers.
It was in April this year that Qatar Airways took a minority stake in U.S private aviation company JetSuite and its sibling company, JetSuiteX. The decision to expand the two companies was made by Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive Akbar Al Baker and JetSuite Inc. Founder and Chief Executive Officer Alex Wilcox at the ongoing Farnborough International Airshow.
The JetSuiteX Embraer 135 jet is one of six aircraft displayed by Qatar Airways at the airshow. The aircraft offers 30 Business Class style seats, a soft private jet interior, along with extra soundproofing, power outlets at every seat and free messaging WiFi.
“Our investment in JetSuite and JetSuiteX is one that we are extremely excited about, and it is a privilege to display the JetSuiteX Embraer 135 at the Farnborough Airshow, providing spectators the chance to see this state-of-the-art aircraft up close,” said Al Baker.
“With the recent investment from Qatar Airways, we are looking forward to taking both our JetSuite private charter and JetSuiteX semi-private scheduled service brands to new heights and introducing these premium air travel experiences to new markets,” said Wilcox.
JetSuiteX operates its fleet of Embraer 135 aircraft from private terminals in California and Nevada. The Qatar Airways investment is expected to enable faster expansion of the fleet and the ability to reach new destinations.
