BookaJet, a leading UK charter and aircraft management company, has debuted the HondaJet Elite onto the G-registry and its UK Air Operator Certificate. Positioned from Farnborough Airport the light bizjet is available for charter. Presented in a striking grey and orange livery, the newly registered G-HJBM seats up to six passengers in executive club seating.
“We are very enthusiastic to bring this stunning executive aircraft into charter service in a UK first. It’s an ideal entry level jet for passenger trips around the UK and into Europe with up to three hours’ flying time”, says BookaJet Managing Director Jonathan Clements. The HondaJet Elite version, launched in 2018, offers expanded performance, enhanced interior and updated Garmin 3000-based flight deck. Range is 1,437 nm (2,661 km). Elite’s payload is also increased by 226 lbs (102 kg) from the classic HondaJet.
It offers flexible executive seating in a spacious cabin, with aft private toilet, excellent cabin accessibility and a combined stowage capacity of 66 cubic ft / 200kg.
The company, founded in 1997, is looking forward to adding a second HondaJet to its fleet in October. It will also be based at Farnborough Airport.
BookaJet plans to work closely with HondaJet’s European distributor and Authorised Service Centre RAS (Rheinland Air Service).
The two companies will be highlighting their new collaboration with a joint exhibition booth at the upcoming Air Charter Expo 2023 at London Biggin Hill Airport on 12 September. A new HondaJet Elite II, just recently delivered, will also showcase in the static display.
