Newly-established Hawaiian charter group Wing Spirit has purchased a total of 15 HondaJets to support inter-island transportation in the Hawaiian Islands.
According to Wing Spirit, the HondaJet Elite became the first light jet to enter service in Hawaii earlier this month.
Wing Spirit will use its HondaJets to provide luxury inter-island transportation throughout the Hawaiian Islands.
The company is also exploring the possibility of using HondaJets as air ambulances and for aviation education opportunities throughout the Hawaiian Islands.
As air ambulances, the aircraft will be outfitted with custom medevac equipment, marking the first time this design has been implemented in the HondaJet program’s history.
“Wing Spirit’s purchase of 15 aircraft to operate throughout the Hawaiian Islands is a realization of our goal to expand the world’s business jet market. Prior to the HondaJet’s entry into service in the region, no other light jet had operated in Hawaii,” said Honda Aircraft Company president and CEO Michimasa Fujino.
“We are confident the HondaJet’s efficiency, comfort and best-in-class performance are well-suited to Wing Spirit’s mission to revolutionize business aviation in the region.”
Sal Miwa, Wing Spirit’s executive vice president and chief operating officer said, “When deciding how we could best provide convenient and luxurious transportation to the residents and tourists in Hawaii, the HondaJet was a natural choice. We are thrilled to expand our fleet to 15 HondaJets and for our customers to experience the most technologically advanced jet in its class.”
