Honda Expands into Europe

Honda Aircraft Company : 21 April, 2008  (Company News)
Honda Aircraft Company has announced plans to expand sales of HondaJet to Europe, beginning in May at the annual EBACE (European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition) conference in Geneva, Switzerland.
Honda's decision to expand sales of its advanced light jet to the rapidly growing European market is a direct response to strong demand for HondaJet since the jet first went on sale in 2006 in the United States.

Offering class-leading performance, fuel efficiency, interior cabin space and cargo capacity, HondaJet is well-suited to meet the needs of European business and personal light jet owners and operators. The HondaJet delivers a maximum cruise speed of 420KTAS (483 mph / 773 kph) with luxurious accommodation for five passengers and two crew in its executive configuration, including a fully private lavatory.

HondaJet incorporates many innovative technological advances in aviation design, including a unique over-the-wing engine-mount configuration that dramatically improves aircraft performance and fuel efficiency by significantly reducing aerodynamic drag in flight. This innovative approach to Airframe design also lowers ground-detected noise when overhead and allows for a more spacious cabin and greater cargo capacity. The HondaJet is powered by two highly fuel efficient GE Honda HF120 turbofan jet engines.

'We are excited to initiate sales in Europe, where we have received a steady stream of inquiries from interested customers who will now have the opportunity to reserve delivery of a HondaJet,' said Michimasa Fujino, Honda Aircraft Company president and CEO. 'We are committed to providing our customers in Europe with both a class-leading product and a sales and service support system that exceed their expectations for private jet ownership and travel.'

Honda recently expanded HondaJet sales throughout North America, announcing the establishment of a sales and service strategy for Mexico and Canada. 'The expansion of HondaJet sales to Europe is an important step in the continued evolution of our business strategy, which seeks to address the extensive world-wide demand for HondaJet,' said Fujino.
