Titan Airways (ZT, London Stansted) is planning to retire its only remaining Boeing freighter, a B737-400(SF), in April 2023, replacing it with additional A321-200(P2F)s, Cargo Facts has reported.

At 30.1 years of age, G-POWS (msn 25853) was retired from regular rotation in mid-December 2022, and has been undergoing maintenance at London Stansted since December 21, 2022. The aircraft has been operated by Titan Airways since 2018, initially for one year in passenger configuration. Its only previous operator was British Airways. Titan Airways will return the aircraft to Automatic Leasing post maintenance.

Once gone, Titan Airways' Boeing fleet will be down to just two B757-200s, of which only one remains active on leisure charters. The airline used to operate Boeing and BAe Systems aircraft exclusively through 2013, when it added its first A320-200. The ch-aviation fleets history module shows that since then, Titan has been gradually moving towards an all-Airbus fleet. In January 2020, it selected the A321-200NX(LR) to replace the B757s.

The airline is also growing its fleet of Airbus narrowbody freighters. The ch-aviation fleets advanced module shows that it currently operates one A321-200(P2F) on its British AOC and a further two via Titan Airways Malta (TM, Malta International). It plans to add two more A321-200(P2F)s during the course of 2023: G-POWW (msn 2060) around May and G-POWN (msn 3830) at a later point this year. Besides the A321 converted freighters, Titan Airways also operates a single A330-300(P2F), as well as two A320-200s, one A321-200 not currently earmarked for conversion, and three A321-200NX(LR)s.
