British freight operator expands Maltese fleet, adds third Airbus A321P2F.

The Maltese subsidiary of British freight operator, Titan Airways Malta, has bolstered its ranks with the addition of a third Airbus A321P2F.

The cargo aircraft, registered as 9H-ZTC, joined the steadily expanding Maltese squadron on June 22, having previously been under the UK's Air Operator's Certificate (AOC). The freighter, notable for being the first to sport the airline's new livery featuring Maltese crosses, heralds a new design era for the carrier. The plan is for all Malta-based aircraft to eventually flaunt this fresh livery, with 9H-ZTA slated to be the next to adopt the new look following scheduled maintenance this weekend.

Titan Airways' cargo operations currently boast a trio of Airbus A321P2Fs, with a fourth unit presently undergoing conversion. This aircraft model holds the distinction of being the first of its kind to offer containerised loading across its dual decks, boasting a cargo capacity of up to 207 cubic metres or 27,000 kilograms.
