Titan Airways launches third Airbus A321neoLR

Titan Airways takes delivery of third Airbus A321neoLR

The latest addition to the Titan Airways fleet, an Airbus A321neoLR, registered G-POWT, arrived at the airline's London Stansted base on Wednesday 16th November, all set for entry into revenue service in either an all-economy 220-seat configuration or an all-business 80 seat configuration.

Alastair Willson, CEO of Titan Airways said: "We are delighted to be expanding our A321LR fleet as we continue our investment in latest technology aircraft. The A321LR is the ideal replacement for our Boeing 757’s which will leave the fleet over the next 6 months. The A321LR’s provide additional range and reduce carbon emissions by around 30% compared to the B757. Passengers will benefit from in-flight connectivity and on-demand entertainment via the Wi-Fi, in a quieter cabin.

G-POWT is the third A321neoLR to enter the Titan fleet in two years, following the introduction of G-XATW and G-GBNI in 2020 and 2021 respectively.

This newest passenger aircraft is available with immediate effect for ACMI airline and full charter flight operations.

The addition of a third A321neoLR and disposal of the Boeing 757 is part of the carrier's move to an all-Airbus fleet, scheduled for completion by the end of 2023. This strategy has also seen the replacement of the old Boeing 737 classic freighters the company used to operate, with the latest generation Airbus A321 freighters.

Titan Airways lends support to young Ukrainian cancer patients

The airline recently supported teams at the Department of Health and Social Care and the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office to safely transport 21 Ukrainian children requiring cancer treatment to the UK. The flight from Rzeszow, Poland to Birmingham took place earlier this year. The children will now receive the treatment and care they need from NHS England

Titan’s small part was to donate the  Airbus A321 to carry the children, family members and the incredible accompanying NHS team, who, working with our crew, ensured the passengers could travel safely and comfortably. Titan were able to operate the flights free of charge with the support of Birmingham Airport and XLR Executive Jet Centres who also volunteered their services to the UK Government when asked by the Department for Transport (DfT), United Kingdom to support these flights.
