Gulfstream G700 Sets International City-Pair Speed Records

Test Aircraft Connects Savannah, Doha and Paris

The Gulfstream G700, set its first ever city-pair speed records from Savannah to Doha, Qatar, and then from Doha to Paris. The G700 is the largest in the Gulfstream’s fleet.

The record breaking flight connected Savannah to Doha, a distance of 6,711 nautical miles, at an average speed of Mach 0.88 in 13 hours and 16 minutes, according to the company. The aircraft then set another city-pair record from Doha to Paris, flying 2,953 nm in 6 hours and 15 minutes at an average speed of Mach 0.90. For the Savannah to Doha flight, Gulfstream fueled the G700 with a blend of sustainable aviation fuel. Carbon offsets are being applied for both flights.

“These were the first international flights for the G700, and it performed exceptionally well, setting two new records in the process,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. “We are excited to introduce the G700 in person to customers in the Middle East and Europe and are proud that we can do so while also demonstrating our commitment to sustainability at the same time. Not only did the aircraft prove its speed and distance capabilities, the fully outfitted cabin is also receiving rave reviews with its impressive cabin size, environment, quality and flexibility.”

The G700 cabin options include entertainment and presentation areas, six place conference and dining areas and a grand suite with shower.

Other interior features include a circadian lighting system, and 20 oval panoramic windows.
