Elit'Avia completes global reach ambitions for Honda
The HondaJet Elite S is a twin-engine, composite fuselage, seven-seat light business jet. It will now be promoted by Elit'Avia in France and Africa, increasing exposure for the Japanese light jet OEM.
Numerous technological innovations, including the unique over-the-wing engine mount configuration, contribute to the aircraft's performance.

Elit'Avia, a provider of business aircraft sales, leasing, charter, aircraft management and related services headquartered in Malta, has entered into an exclusive partnership with Honda Aircraft Company, manufacturer of the HondaJet Elite S.

Elit'Avia has been appointed as the exclusive sales representative for HondaJet aircraft in France and 16 African countries, including Nigeria.

The HondaJet Elite S is a twin-engine, composite fuselage, seven-seat light business jet. Numerous technological innovations, including the unique over-the-wing engine mount (OTWEM) configuration, contribute to the aircraft's performance, efficiency and maximised fuselage space, which gives the aircraft the largest cabin in its class. The HondaJet Elite S also features a full service galley and a private lavatory.

“We are proud to be representing HondaJet in France and Africa,” says Michel Coulomb, CEO of Elit'Avia. “The HondaJet is an innovative aircraft that has redefined its class. With a range of 1,437 nm, the HondaJet Elite S is perfect for travel throughout Europe and ideally suited to reach African destinations that are not typically well-served by commercial aviation carriers. As a light business aircraft, the HondaJet delivers many of the efficiency and comfort benefits of a much larger aircraft but at a far more attractive price point. We look forward to working with our new partners at Honda Aircraft Company.”

President and CEO of Honda Aircraft Company Michimasa Fujino adds: “We are very pleased to be working with the Elit'Avia team. Representing France and several African nations, Elit'Avia completes our global reach. Elit'Avia's excellent expertise in aircraft sales, charter and aircraft management, as well as its operations in the European and African business aviation market, adds great value to our commitment to the business aviation market and superior customer support in the region, as we continue to receive significant interest from customers. We look forward to our shared success.”
