Air taxi service provider Wijet has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Honda Aircraft Company to upgrade its fleet with multiple HondaJets. The announcement was made during the Singapore Airshow at Changi Exhibition Centre on February 8, 2018.

The MoU follows Honda Aircraft’s recent announcements of the HondaJet being the most-delivered jet in its category for the first half of 2017 and achieving 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 later.

“I am delighted that Wijet has chosen the HondaJet to provide their customers with the exceptional experience of the most advanced light jet on the market,” said Honda Aircraft president and CEO Michimasa Fujino.

“I am confident the HondaJet will meet and exceed their expectations with its quietest, most spacious and most comfortable cabin in its class combined with unrivaled speed, efficiency, and amenities like a fully-private lavatory and wi-fi connectivity.”

Patrick Hersent, CEO of Wijet, commented, “There is no comparison to the HondaJet, in its category. For our customers, we offer the best-of-the-best in terms of products and experience while providing our partners with a safe and superior product at an affordable rate. The HondaJet does all of these things.”
