World’s largest business jet Boeing 747-8 is a gift from Qatar to Turkey


Qatar’s Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani has presented a luxurious Boeing 747-8i as a gift to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, according to a report published on Thursday by Turkey’s state-run broadcaster TRT Haber.

The 747-8 model VIP Boeing touched down in İstanbul on Wednesday morning after a long flight from Basel.

The aircraft in question, registered in Bermuda as VQ-BSK, rolled off the Boeing assembly line in Everett (WA) in 2012 and was fitted with a VVIP interior by Boeing’s San Antonio (TX) service centre in 2015. On board, there are facilities such as a large bedroom with a double bed, a living room, staterooms and meeting rooms, a bathroom and even its own special hospital.
