Honda Aircraft Company and Wijet, a provider of air taxi service currently operating 15 business jets throughout Europe, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for multiple HondaJets to upgrade the Wijet fleet, the company said.
Honda Aircraft made the announcement during the Singapore Airshow being held at Changi Exhibition Centre, where the HondaJet is making its first-ever appearance.
The MoU follows Honda Aircraft´s recent announcements of being the most-delivered jet in its category for the first half of 2017 and several speed records in its class. Wijet is expected to take delivery of its first HondaJet during the first quarter of 2018 with more to follow.
The HondaJet is currently certified in Europe (European Aviation Safety Agency), the United States (Federal Aviation Administration), Mexico (Directorate General of Civil Aviation), Canada (Transport Canada) and Brazil (Brazilian National Civil Aviation Agency).
Wijet is one of the fastest-growing on-demand airlines in Europe and the first air taxi airline in France. It will enable you to travel all around Europe and North Africa (to over 1,200 different airports), conveniently and safely.
The HondaJet is the fastest, highest-flying, quietest, and most fuel-efficient jet in its class. The HondaJet incorporates many technological innovations in aviation design, including the unique Over-The-Wing Engine Mount (OTWEM) configuration that dramatically improves performance and fuel efficiency by reducing aerodynamic drag.
