Jet It, the North Carolina-based fractional operator of HondaJets, is adding two Gulfstream G150s to its fleet to enable transcontinental U.S. flights and increased capacity for its shareowners while beginning a long-term plan to add the larger HondaJet 2600 to its fleet.
“The G150 will lead to a seamless integration of cross-continental travel for our shareowners,” said Jet It co-founder and CEO Glenn Gonzales. “Honda’s commitment to aviation with the announcement of the HondaJet 2600 is exciting, and we intend to be the launch customer when the aircraft becomes available.”
Honda Aircraft unveiled plans for the 2600 concept twinjet—with a range of 2,625 nm and seating for up to 11 passengers—at NBAA-BACE 2021 in October. The company presented it as a concept for market research and said a decision on commercialization would come later.
Gonzales said shareowner feedback led Jet It to add the G150, which seats eight and has a 3,200-nm range. “Three years in, we’re excited to add larger, longer-range options with an auspicious business plan,” he added.
