U.K.-based Titan Airways is growing its freighter fleet with a fourth A321F.
The carrier told Cargo Facts it had committed to a conversion slot in 2021 for one of its own A321-200s (2060, ex-Thomas Cook Airlines). At Cargo Facts EMEA 2020 in February, Titan’s Commercial Director Alex Harrington said the aircraft had been bought in the beginning of the year with a view to conversion after operating it in passenger service through the summer.
Titan currently already has two A321s undergoing conversion by Elbe Flugzeugwerke (EFW) in Singapore (XSP); unit 1238 (ex-Thomas Cook) was inducted in January, and unit 1250 was inducted in March. Both are being leased from BBAM, with Titan confirming their expected redeliveries in September and November.
Titan told Cargo Facts it also hopes to secure a conversion slot for a fourth aircraft, an A321 from its own fleet. Cargo Facts believes this will be unit 3708 (ex-Jet 2), the oldest of the three other A321s in Titan’s passenger fleet.
Titan added a second 737-400SF (25853) in July 2019, and is currently operating it on an ACMI basis for West Atlantic between Stansted (STN) and Belfast (BFS). The other 737-400SF (25844) is also being operated on an ACMI basis, between Southend (SEN) and Madrid (MAD), on behalf of ASL Airlines.
Titan recently returned its single 767-300ER (30847) to GECAS, which will convert it into freighter configuration.
