Atlanta, Georgia-headquartered fractional operator Volato has placed a new order for 25 HondaJet Elite II aircraft, bringing its fleet to over 40 HondaJets. The new aircraft model was recently announced at October's NBAA-BACE conference. Members of Volato's fractional ownership programme have immediate access to its HondaJet fleet, which will include the Elite II aircraft upon delivery.
“We believe in the vision and future of Honda Aircraft Company as it continues to optimise the private jet experience with the HondaJet,” explains CEO and founder Matt Liotta. “Every business decision we make aims to deliver the best experience for our customers. For example, we are working directly with Honda Aircraft Company to optimise the features and functionality of the galley, leading to a more luxurious in-cabin experience. Volato's fractional ownership programme provides an unmatched offering in the industry, and it makes sense that one of our key partners would have the equivalent offering in aircraft manufacturing. Receiving such a large order from HACI is a big win for Volato and further reinforces our strong working relationship.”
The HondaJet Elite II is one of the most technologically advanced, eco-friendly and economical aircraft on the market, setting new standards in fuel efficiency, performance, comfort and technology. With an expanded range, higher gross weight and additional fuel capacity, users will enjoy greater mission capability and more flexibility than ever before.
Fractional shares in a Volato HondaJet allow members to take full advantage of all the benefits of owning a private aircraft without the stress of managing the upkeep and logistics. Available shares range from 1/16 to a whole aircraft; each with a five year programme term. Owners in Volato's programme can fly as little or as much as they like and earn a revenue share every time their aircraft flies a live mission.
This latest jet order is a part of Volato's mission to provide the highest calibre of service and quality of aircraft to customers. The company now has over 40 HondaJets currently in operation or ordered and recently announced a fleet order of Gulfstream G280 aircraft configured for 10 passengers.
Other extensions of Volato's solutions include the Stretch Jet Card, Volato Aircraft Management Services and charter services. Volato operates across the US with a floating fleet and has bases in Atlanta, Georgia; St Augustine and Fort Lauderdale in Florida; Baltimore, Maryland; Houston, Texas; and Carlsbad, California.
