Honda expects Elite to shine in China
President and CEO of Honda Aircraft Company Michimasa Fujino says that the HondaJet Elite will provide Chinese customers with exceptional performance, efficiency and comfort on their travels.
Following CAAC certification in August, the first HondaJet Elite in China has arrived with its customer.

Honda Aircraft Company has commenced deliveries of the HondaJet Elite to China. This first HondaJet Elite was delivered by Honda at its world headquarters in Greensboro, North Carolina to its exclusive dealer in China: Honsan General Aviation Co.

The first delivery to China comes after receiving Chinese type certification from the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) in August 2019. To support HondaJet customers in China, Honsan 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, a global leasing company based in Japan.

“Delivering the first HondaJet to China is a significant milestone for Honda Aircraft,” says 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 revolutionise it.”

Honsan CEO Cheng Qian adds: “The first delivery of the HondaJet Elite to Honsan marks a significant step. 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.”

Honda'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.
