Middle East airline Qatar Airways just took delivery of a fancy Gulfstream G700 aircraft, making it the world’s first G700 private jet, and the airline shared a video capturing the plane landing in Doha.

If you take a lot of flights, you might already know that the Middle East airline is among the most luxurious airlines in the world.

However, they take the luxury experience a step further with its subsidiary — Qatar Executive.

And — you guessed it — the fancy division attracts elite customers who have no problems paying a little extra to get a stepped-up flight experience.

Pilot landing Qatar Airways Gulfstream G700 in video

The almost five-minute-long video shows the pilot of the Gulfstream G700 cruising over the city of Doha.

There, we get to see several iconic places in the city like the Doha Beach Club and the Nation Museum of Qatar (NMOQ).

All that time, the pilot prepares for landing, and we can also hear their communications as the G700 makes its way towards Runway 15 at the Doha International Airport.

And because we can’t hear any other sound, the private jet appears to be cruising over the Qatar city in peace.

It’s certainly a calming sight, to say the least.

The landing, too, went quite smoothly.

In the airline’s words, it was a ‘beautiful’ landing.

That might have to do something with how capable Gulfstream’s latest private jet is.

If you want to watch the full video of the landing, take a look at it here.

The Gulfstream G700 is unlike any other

The Qatar airline is the international launch customer for Gulfstream’s latest private jet.

We already know that Gulfstream started delivering the G700 only a few weeks ago.

After Qatar got the first G700, it wrapped the private jet in the Qatar Executive dark red livery.

Moreover, the G700, which is an upgrade to the already popular Gulfstream G650ER, looks oddly similar to its predecessor from the outside.

But when it comes to a private jet, the beauty lies in the details — inside.

Step aboard, and you will witness a luxurious interior, and the $81 million price tag will start to make some sense.

There’s a club area, an office space, a dining room, and a bedroom.

And did we mention that it also has its own private theater?

The G700 is surely an elite way to take an international flight, and it’s rightly owned by one of the world’s most luxurious airlines.
