After announcing plans to expand to Southeast Asia and India last year, HondaJet fractional fleet operator Jet It says it is now headed north to Canada.
Jet It promises “white-glove private jet service throughout the country” at a fixed hourly rate of CAD 2,200, with no additional reposition, fuel surcharge, or landing fees.
Jet It Canada owners can buy one-tenth to half of an aircraft, and through the Jet It day-based model, they’ll have an aircraft available to them for an entire day and only pay for the occupied time at that rate. According to Business Jet Traveler, a new Honda HA-420 is priced at $4.5 million.
Jet It aligned itself with Skyservice Business Aviation for its aircraft management and operations to enter the Canadian market.
“Skyservice is the premier operator in Canada with the best facilities, one of the largest managed fleets in North America, and they have a focused commitment to service for the full range of their capabilities. By aligning with Skyservice, our clients will be assured a high level of service reaching across the country,” says Jet It CEO Glenn Gonzales.
Jet It also added Jeremi Austin to direct sales and operations in Canada. Austin, a licensed pilot, and aviator has sold aircraft management and pre-owned aircraft from every OEM and new Diamond and HondaJet aircraft.
“Canadians are looking for a bespoke travel experience at an economical rate and access to business aviation for the entire day. They want consistency at an expected price. The rapid growth of Jet It in the United States proves that Jet It is providing private travelers with a higher quality of life and with Jet It Canada this smart and refined way to travel is available to Canadians,” says Austin.
Jet It Canada has already begun sales and expects to have its first C-registered aircraft in operation in the coming months.
“The extension of Jet It operations from the U.S. to Canada, and this month marking the beginning of operations in Europe through sister company JetClub, is a game-changer. The ability to travel between countries and continents and have the comfort of a known quantity that provides consistent and reasonably affordable transportation with an industry-leading level of service is an unmatched value. I am truly excited to bring the many benefits of Jet It and JetClub to fellow Canadians,” says Austin.
