Volato, a private aviation company based in Atlanta, said it has completed a transaction to acquire 25 HondaJets from the Honda Aircraft Company slated for delivery by the end of 2025. Late last year Volato announced it had ordered the aircraft.
Volato said it has developed a strong relationship with Honda since acquiring its first HondaJet in 2021. The company currently has 17 of the Honda aircraft in its fleet and said it has worked with Honda to improve customer satisfaction with upgrades to the aircrafts’ galley and improvements to its maintenance programs.
“We are delighted to strengthen our relationship with Honda Aircraft Company, and we thank them for their continued support of Volato,” said Volato CEO Matt Liotta. “This new order will allow us to meet the growing demand for private air travel customers who are looking for the most efficient and most luxurious cabin in the very light jet class.”

Volato, which touts itself as the world’s largest operator of HondaJets, also said it is experiencing strong demand for its fractional program, the Stretch Jet Card, Insider Deposit Program, and its charter services.
Volato said it also plans to add four Gulfstream G280s to its fleet next year to give its members a greater range of flight options.
