North Carolina-headquartered Jet It has taken delivery of its first Canadian-based HondaJet as the fractional ownership provider continues its international expansion. The company announced earlier this year plans to broaden its North American footprint by moving into Canada and aligning with Skyservice Business Aviation for aircraft management and operations there. Jet It also hired Canadian aviation industry veteran Jeremi Austin to lead sales and operations in the U.S.'s northern neighbor.

Jet It Canada owners can buy one-tenth to one-half shares of a HondaJet, which equates to allotted days of use, not flight hours. The company provides concierge service, flight crew, and access to the aircraft for an entire day but customers pay for an occupied flight time rate of $2,200 Canadian dollars per hour with no additional reposition, fuel surcharge, or landing fees.

Delivery of the Canadian-based HondaJet adds a third territory for Jet It, which also has operations in the U.S. and—under the JetClub brand—in Europe. It also comes as travel reopens into Canada from the U.S. and is set to reopen to further international destinations in upcoming months.

"Jet It and JetClub have focused on these three territories to provide even more value to our aircraft shareowners,” said Jet It co-founder Vishal Hiremath.
