Volato to become world's largest HondaJet operator
The contract comes as Volato experiences significant demand for lift driven by robust growth of its unique fractional programme, the Stretch jet card, Insider deposit programme and charter services.
Volato has 17 HondaJets currently in the fleet and operates one of the most modern fleets in private aviation today.

Atlanta, Georgia-headquartered HondaJet fleet operator Volato has secured the delivery of 23 HondaJets. These are in addition to two already on order and will be delivered by the end of 2025. Volato has forged a strong relationship with Honda Aircraft Company (HACI) since the delivery of its first HondaJet in August 2021, working together on galley upgrades and improvements to maintenance programmes.

“We are delighted to strengthen our relationship with Honda Aircraft Company, and we thank it for its continued support of Volato,” says CEO Matt Liotta. “This new order will allow us to meet the growing demand for private air travel customers who are looking for the most efficient and most luxurious cabin in the very light jet class.”

Volato is the world's largest operator of HondaJets with 17 currently in its fleet, and maintains both ARGUS Platinum and IS-BAO Stage II safety certifications. The company also has the largest cadre of HondaJet pilots in the world.

The company plans to add four Gulfstream G280s to its fleet in 2024.
