“Following a strong introduction of the HondaJet at ABACE 2017 and significant interest from customers about owning a HondaJet, we are beginning aircraft sales in Southeast Asia,” said Honda Aircraft Company President and CEO Michimasa Fujino. “We see great potential for the HondaJet in Southeast Asia, one of the world’s fastest growing regions.”
Honda Aircraft Company has appointed Thai Aerospace Services (TAS) as its delaer, and TAS will provide sales, service and support for HondaJet customers in Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Singapore and Vietnam as HondaJet Southeast Asia. TAS is a leading aviation company headquartered in Bangkok with more than 40 years of aviation experience.
“Thai Aerospace Services is honored to be selected as a partner to sell and support the HondaJet in Southeast Asia,” said Kasabol Bowonsrikan, CEO and managing director of Thai Aerospace Services. “With Bangkok’s central location among the ASEAN countries and proximity to major international hubs like Hong Kong, the range of the HondaJet extends to every destination in the region.”
Honda Aircraft Company concluded the first quarter of 2017 with 15 aircraft deliveries, the most delivered light jet in its class. At the company’s world headquarters in Greensboro, N.C., production continues its steady ramp up to meet customer demand.

The OTWEM design also reduces cabin sound, minimizes ground-detected noise, and allows for the roomiest cabin in its class, the largest baggage capacity, and a fully serviceable private aft lavatory. The HondaJet is equipped with the most sophisticated glass flight deck available in any light business jet, a Honda-customized Garmin® G3000 The HondaJet is Honda's first commercial aircraft and lives up to the company’s reputation for superior performance, efficiency, quality and value.
