The chief executives of Qatar Airways and JetSuite came together at the show yesterday to publicaly endorse their collaboration.

The Doha-based carrier made an unspecified investment in the US public charter and VIP operator in April to help it accelerate its expansion plans. It joins fellow airline JetBlue, which bought into the business in October 2016.

“It helps to be associated with powerful brands,” said JetSuite chief executive Alex Wilcox at Farnborough. “We selected investors with smart money and influence, which will help us to grow every aspect of our business from marketing to support.”

JetSuite sells jet cards and on-demand charter for its fleet of 20 Embraer Phenom 100 and 300 business jets. Its newer JetSuiteX scheduled public charter subsidiary operates nine ERJ 135 regional jets from private aviation terminals across California and Nevada.
