"I am confident the HondaJet will meet and exceed their customers' expectations with its unrivaled speed, efficiency, luxurious features and comfort. I'm looking forward to expanding the business jet market through the use of the HondaJet by ANA."

ANA HOLDINGS INC. President and CEO, Shinya Katanozaka commented, "Through this strategic partnership and use of the HondaJet, ANA will create new demand to utilize business jets, in particular for travelers of various Japanese entities who value convenience and privacy in their overseas travel."
