HondaJet opened its first sales, service and customer support center in China in January, choosing the new business jet terminal at Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport, Guangzhou, as its base.

Honda Aircraft’s affiliate, Honsan General Aviation, will do business from there as HondaJet China.

“We look forward to providing an exceptional customer experience synonymous with the Honda brand by representing HondaJet in the greater China region and providing a dedicated sales and service experience to the customer,” said Honsan chairman Zhou Yuxi.

“Honda is a mobility company, and we are always challenging ourselves to advance the future of mobility,” said Honda Motor Company president and CEO Takahiro Hachigo.

“The HondaJet has fulfilled founder Soichiro Honda’s long-standing dream to take personal mobility skyward,” he said. “With the cooperation between Honda Aircraft Company and Honsan Aviation, I am confident the HondaJet will deliver ‘the joy that promotes freedom of mobility’ to customers in China.”

Honda (Static Display and Chalet 15) named Honsan as its outlet for China, Hong Kong and Macau last October.

The twin-engine HondaJet ranked as the most-delivered aircraft in its category in 2017, when 43 of the type were delivered to customers in the U.S., Canada, Mexico and Europe. Honda aims to deliver as many as 55 this year.
