Titan Airways (London-Stansted) has retired its last BAe RJ100 after a long association with the UK-built 146 series of aircraft. The airline issued this statement:
Titan Airways RJ100, G-POWF, left the fleet to begin a new role with Canadian operator, North Cariboo Air.
G-POWF, which had been with us for two and a half years, had most recently been employed on a government contract in the Gulf region. The RJ100 superseded Titan Airways’ BAe 146 operations in the Gulf which dated back to 2009.
The role previously fulfilled by Titan is now being taken over by the RAF’s own aircraft.
The departure of the RJ100 is a step in Titan’s long term strategy to operate more modern, economical and environmentally friendly aircraft. In addition to the phasing out of older aircraft types, we have begun actively seeking younger, more efficient aircraft. An Airbus A320-233 was introduced in April and we are looking for further opportunities to expand our charter fleet with Airbus.
