Titan Airways says goodbye to its final Boeing 737 Classic aircraft

The UK speciality ACMI airline Titan Airways has paid tribute to the classic Boeing 737 jet that is leaving the carrier's fleet.

Titan Airways has operated its last Boeing 737 Classic flight, with its last remaining Boeing 737 Classic, a B737-400F aircraft registered G-POWS, retiring from active revenue service on 8th April.

G-POWS joined the highly respected airline in early 2018 after the successful introduction of an initial Boeing 737-400 the previous year. G-POWS began life at Titan as a passenger aircraft before undergoing a freight conversion in the autumn of 2018. Since then, it has mainly flown UK domestic mail routes on behalf of the Royal Mail.

Before the 400’s, and dating back to the early 90’s, Titan operated the Boeing 737-300QC. These aircraft could be quickly converted from passenger to freight and flew passengers during the day and cargo at night. At the peak of our 737-300 flying, Titan operated three QC’s and one dedicated freighter.

The 737 Classic has played a key role in the 35-year history of Titan Airways and the last one had a special water canon salute as a final farewell at the plane's London Stansted base.  

Titan will now operate a more modern and more sustainable fuel-efficient aircraft, such as the Airbus A321P2F and the Airbus A330-300P2F on the freight side, and the state-of-the-art A321neoLR on the passenger side.

Titan Airways carries England football team to Italy.

Last week Titan Airways had the privilege of flying the England national football team to Naples for their UEFA European Qualifier against Italy on 23rd March.

The flights were organised on the Team’s behalf by Air Charter Travel Limited. The air charter broker opted for one of our A321-211 aircraft, configured with 80 premium seats and 10 standard seats for the trip.

The match ended in a 2-1 victory for the Three Lions, with Harry Kane scoring the winning goal to become England’s all-time record goalscorer. The win is England’s first against Italy on Italian soil since 1961. What a great start to England’s group C European qualifying campaign!

Titan are privileged to have flown the England team on this occasion and we look forward to welcoming them back onboard for future international fixtures.

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.
