ESSEX, UNITED KINGDOM — Titan Airways has announced the retirement of its last Boeing 737-400SF, registered G-POWS (25853). The aircraft completed its final flight on April 8, 2023, and received a water cannon salute before being stored at London-Stansted. 

G-POWS joined Titan Airways in early 2018, following the successful launch of the inaugural Boeing 737-400 the previous year. Initially operating as a passenger aircraft, G-POWS was converted into a freighter in fall 2018 and has since primarily flown domestic UK mail routes for the Royal Mail.

The retirement of the 737 Classic aligns with Titan's ongoing efforts to transition to a more sustainable future by incorporating more fuel-efficient aircraft into its fleet. This includes the A321neo Long Range for passengers and the Airbus A321P2F and A330-300P2F for freight operations.

Titan Airways has operated a total of seven Boeing 737s over the years, comprising five Boeing 737-300s and two Boeing 737-400s. With the retirement of the last Boeing 737, the fleet now consists of two Airbus A320s, three A321-200P2Fs, three A321s, three A321neos, one A330-300P2F, and one Boeing B757-200. Additionally, its Titan Airways Malta subsidiary operates two A321-200P2Fs.
