Honda Aircraft Company to Introduce Certified Pre-owned Program in Asia at Singapore Airshow

SINGAPORE, Feb 16, 2024 - Honda Aircraft Company is set to introduce its Certified Pre-owned (CPO) program to the Asian market at Singapore Airshow. This marks a significant expansion of Honda Aircraft Company’s innovative offerings on a global scale, building on the program’s successful launch in 2023. Honda Aircraft Company will also display the HondaJet (HA-420) throughout the Singapore Airshow, offering visitors a close-up look at its advanced design and technology.

The category-pioneering CPO program, first released in the United States in June 2023, is a testament to Honda’s commitment to quality, precision, and transparency, reflective of its esteemed automotive legacy. The Honda Aircraft Company CPO comes with a rigorous 208-point inspection and a comprehensive maintenance process, ensuring unparalleled peace of mind, backed by an OEM-endorsed product. In addition, it promises direct interaction with Honda Aircraft’s experts throughout the ownership experience and facilitates the OEM’s direct oversight of every phase of the aircraft’s lifecycle. The CPO offering not only upholds the highest standards of quality control and seamless customer experience but also prioritizes sustainability by reducing resource consumption, reflecting Honda’s commitment to environmental responsibility.

“We’re proud to showcase the progress we are making to expand the HondaJet fleet and services across Asia,” said Honda Aircraft Senior Vice President & Chief Commercial Officer Amod Kelkar. “The HondaJet is ideally suited to meet the regional aviation demands here. As the demand for high quality light jet travel solution soars, we are dedicated to offering innovative solutions that meet our customers’ needs. Introducing the Honda Aircraft Company CPO program in Asia demonstrates our deep understanding of these needs.”

In its continuous effort to enhance its presence in Asia, Honda Aircraft Company has appointed new Authorized Sales Representatives (ASR) and Authorized Service Centers (ASC), including KarbonMRO as the exclusive ASC for Southeast Asia in 2022, and Forth Corporation Public Company Limited and WingsOverAsia Pte Ltd as regional HondaJet ASRs in 2023. These appointments aim to provide HondaJet customers in Asia with services that uphold Honda’s standards of accessibility, quality, and safety.

Bolstered by its extensive and reliable global network, Honda Aircraft Company is introducing the Aircraft Management Service (AMS) in Asia to better support the high utilization needs of its customers. The AMS program, managed by Honda Aircraft Company Customer Service Division, offers personalized maintenance management support, designed to make HondaJet ownership effortless and optimize flight hours.

As the HondaJet global fleet exceeds 210,000 flight hours and grows to over 250 aircraft worldwide-- including a prominent 20% increase in flight activities in Asia in 2023, Honda Aircraft Company remains committed to improving customer satisfaction. Expanding its service network to 21 locations worldwide, Honda Aircraft Company’s sales and service footprint now spans the Americas, Europe, and Asia.
