Honda Aircraft Company Begins Deliveries of HondaJet Elite to China
US, Dec 11, 2019 - (JCN Newswire) - Honda Aircraft Company has begun deliveries of the HondaJet Elite to China. This first HondaJet Elite was delivered by Honda Aircraft Company at its world headquarters in Greensboro, NC to its exclusive dealer in China, Honsan General Aviation Co., Ltd.
The first delivery to China comes after receiving Chinese type certification from the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) in August 2019, demonstrating that the aircraft meets the organization's safety standards. To support HondaJet customers in China, Honsan General Aviation Co., Ltd. will provide sales and service at the business jet terminal in Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport in Guangzhou, China. This first HondaJet delivery to China is being financed by Mitsubishi UFJ Lease & Finance Co. Ltd., a global leasing company based in Japan.
"Delivering the first HondaJet to China is a significant milestone for Honda Aircraft," said Honda Aircraft Company president and CEO Michimasa Fujino. "We will continue to showcase the many benefits of very light jet travel with the HondaJet Elite. We will provide Chinese customers with exceptional performance, efficiency, and comfort on their travels and will add value to the general aviation industry in China and eventually revolutionize it."
"The first delivery of the HondaJet Elite to Honsan marks a significant step for HondaJets entering the Chinese market. We are confident that we will provide an exceptional customer experience to future Chinese customers. We are eager to develop the very light jet market in China with the HondaJet and its superior performance," said CEO of Honsan General Aviation Co., Ltd. Dr. Cheng Qian.
Honda Aircraft Company's sales and service footprint spans North America, Europe, Latin America, Southeast Asia, China, the Middle East, India, and Japan. The HondaJet fleet is currently comprised of around 140 aircraft around the globe and was the most delivered light jet in its class for 2017 and 2018.
