Titan Airways (ZT, London Stansted) has retired its sole remaining B757-200, saying that while the almost 23-year-old frame played a big part in the UK charter specialist's success, the type's retirement will make way for quieter more fuel-efficient aircraft like the A321-200NX(LR).

G-ZAPX (msn 29309) operated its final revenue flights for Titan Airways on May 4, 2023, when it flew from Victoria Falls to London Stansted via Accra, completing the final legs of a private charter. The jet went to Titan Airways in 2006 after Iberia (IB, Madrid Barajas) operated it for six years.

"We first became an operator of the B757 in the early 2000s, its arrival transforming Titan from a short haul European carrier to a worldwide operator," the airline said on its social media feeds.

In addition to G-ZAPX, Titan Airways has operated three other B757-200s. It flew G-ZAPU (msn 26151) between 2003 and 2010, it's first of the B757 type. That aircraft is now at FedEx Express (FX, Memphis International). The airline also briefly operated G-POWJ (msn 29307) for six months in the first half of 2014. That plane is now at Icelandair (FI, Reykjavik Keflavik) and registered as TF-LLL. In 2012, Titan Airways took delivery of G-POWH (msn 29308), ex AtlasGlobal (Istanbul Airport) stock. That plane flew for Titan Airways until March 2023 when it was withdrawn from service. According to ch-aviation fleets data, 2Excel Aviation (BRO, Northampton Sywell) has secured the aircraft.

After Titan Airways retired its final Boeing aircraft in April, it now is an all-Airbus operator. G-POWS (msn 25853), a B737-400(SF), flew its final revenue flight for the carrier on April 7 after five plus years of service there. Over the years, Titan Airways has operated 13 Boeing aircraft - nine different types of B737 classics and the four B757-200s. Now, it is flying nine narrowbodies and one widebody, including two A320-200s, three A321-200s, one A321-200(P2F), three A321-200NX(LR)s, and one A330-300(P2F).
