Titan Airways is approaching the end of its 737 operations as it continues to grow its narrowbody Airbus fleet.
U.K.-based Titan plans to return its sole 737-400SF, the 1992-vintage unit 25853, to Automatic LLC off lease in April, the airline told Cargo Facts. The aircraft, which in 2019 joined Titan Airways on lease from Automatic LLC, is undergoing maintenance and has remained parked in London (STN) since mid-December.
As Titan prepares to step away from 737 Classic operations, it will add to its growing fleet of A321 freighters after sending the 2003-vintage unit 2060 for conversion with Elbe Flugzeugwerke (EFW) at the ST Engineering facility in Singapore (XSP) on Jan. 6.
Titan Airways told Cargo Facts that it expects unit 2060 to be redelivered around May.
When converted, unit 2060 will join three other A321P2Fs averaging nineteen years old and one 2006-vintage A330-300P2F operated on a CMI basis for Geodis.
Titan Airways took redelivery of its youngest A321F in June 2022 with the arrival of the 2008-vintage unit 3749.
Unit 2060 is one of two A321 conversions Titan Airways expects this year. The airline previously told Cargo Facts of its plans to grow its A321F fleet to five aircraft in 2023. The next A321 Titan had previously earmarked for conversion is the 2009-vintage unit 3830 (ex-Niki).
