Titan Airways, the London Stansted-based charter and airline sub-charter specialist, is strengthening its fleet in 2020 with the introduction of two Airbus A321LR’s. The brand-new aircraft are scheduled for delivery in late summer and will enter revenue service in the autumn, following custom outfitting by Airbus Corporate Jets for maximum passenger comfort in a variety of cabin configurations.
With 3 ACTs installed, the aircraft has an impressive range of 4,000nm. The A321LR’s represent the future of narrow-bodied long-haul flying for Titan and will ultimately replace the carrier’s Boeing 757-200’s.
Powered by CFM Leap engines and incorporating Airbus ’“Sharklets” the quieter, more economical A321LR will burn approximately 25% less fuel than the B757, enabling the carrier to reduce CO2 emissions from its operations.
Titan Airways have opted for a selection of cabin configurations for the new additions, including a single-class layout with 195 standard seats and a two-class layout, with 16 premium seats at the front of the cabin and 168 standard seats at the rear. The carrier has chosen Acro’s Series 6 economy seats and Series 7 premium seats. The ergonomic design of Acro’s seats maximises comfort and living space during long-haul flights and the seats are upholstered in black leather for a sleek modern look. The aircraft will also be operated by Titan on behalf of luxury tour operator TCS World Travel in an all-business configuration with 52 fully lie-flat seats.
The sister aircraft are equipped with state-of-the-art hi-speed WiFi and Airbus‘ OSP in-flight entertainment (IFE) system.
The introduction of the Airbus A321LR’s will follow the arrival of a maiden wide-bodied Airbus A330, due for delivery to Titan Airways in the spring as Titan takes another step towards its objective of a modern all-Airbus fleet.
