HondaJet now exclusively promoted in Middle East by Jetex
Jetex was named as an authorised sales agent for Honda's light jet in May at EBACE, and now it has been given exclusive status. Honda says it has experienced tremendous interest in the Gulf for the type.

Jetex has struck an agreement with Honda Aircraft Company to become the exclusive authorised dealer for the HondaJet in the Gulf and Middle East region. “With Honda's brand strength and recognition in the Middle East, we have received tremendous interest in the HondaJet Elite," says Honda president and CEO Michimasa Fujino. "We are proud to appoint Jetex as HondaJet Middle East to provide our customers with a committed sales team in the region for the world's most advanced very light jet.”

Jetex CEO Adel Mardini is proud to have been chosen. “We will leverage our global network and our experience to offer unrivalled support for HondaJet in the region," he states.

Jetex was originally appointed as an authorised sales agent in May during EBACE, where the HondaJet Elite was unveiled.

The aircraft is a second generation version of the HondaJet, which includes an over-the-wing engine mount, composite fuselage and a natural laminar flow fuselage nose and wing. These improvements mean passengers benefit from a large cabin and seating for up to seven people including a pilot. Other onboard facilities include a galley, private lavatory with optional belted seat and a Bongiovi sound system.

The aircraft is also equipped with Garmin G3000 all-glass avionics.
