LONDON — The British charter specialist Titan Airways has taken delivery of a third Airbus A321LR aircraft, the long-range variant of the A320neo Family.

The aircraft with registration G-POWT arrived at the carrier's London Stansted base today, Wednesday, 16th November, in readiness for entry into revenue service in either an all-economy 220-seat configuration or an all-business 80-seat configuration.

"We are delighted to be expanding our A321LR fleet as we continue our investment in the latest technology aircraft. The A321LR is the ideal replacement for our Boeing 757's which will leave the fleet over the next six months. The A321LR provides additional range and reduces 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," Titan Airways' CEO, Alastair Willson, said.

G-POWT is the third A321LR to enter the Titan Airways fleet in two years, following the introduction of G-XATW and G-GBNI in 2020 and 2021, respectively.

Titan's newest passenger aircraft is available with immediate effect for ACMI airline and full charter flight operations. The addition of a third A321LR and disposal of the B757 is part of Titan Airways' move to an all-Airbus fleet, scheduled for completion by the end of 2023. This strategy has also seen the company replace its B737 classic freighters with the latest generation A321 freighters.
