Wing Spirit has taken delivery of two HondaJet Elites in Hawaii.

Newly established Hawaii-based operator Wing Spirit has taken delivery of two HondaJet Elites. The company will provide charter services for inter-island transportation, and is also exploring using the aircraft as air ambulances and for aviation education opportunities throughout the Hawaiian Islands. The aircraft serving as air ambulances will be outfitted with custom medevac interiors, marking the first time the HondaJet has been configured for this mission type.

Executive vice president and chief operating officer Sal Miwa says: “We are looking forward to revolutionising the business aviation industry in Hawaii with the HondaJet. We are confident the aircraft's unrivalled performance and comfort will help us to provide our customers with exceptional experiences.”

He also notes: “We have a great relationship with Honda Aircraft, which has been working on our orders since last year. We are hoping to start our charter service in a few months time, and we are also planning to start the air ambulance service after December.”

“The HondaJet's superior performance and comfort is well-suited to serve Hawaii's population of 1.4 million residents and 10 million annual visitors by providing convenient transportation between heavily trafficked islands,” says Honda Aircraft Company president and CEO Michimasa Fujino. “When creating the HondaJet, my goal was to design a technologically advanced aircraft that would improve the lives of customers around the world. Wing Spirit using HondaJets for lifesaving transportation and as a method of convenient transit between islands is true recognition that the aircraft is achieving that goal.”

The HondaJet fleet is currently comprised of more than 125 aircraft operating around the world, and the type has ranked as the most delivered aircraft in its class for two consecutive years. Honda Aircraft Company's sales and service footprint spans territories in North America, Europe, Middle and South America, southeast Asia, China, the Middle East, India and Japan.
