Titan Airways (ZT, London Stansted) has announced that it will take delivery of two A321-200neo(LR)s later this year to replace its ageing B757-200s.

"The brand new aircraft are scheduled for delivery in late summer and will enter revenue service in the autumn, following custom outfitting by Airbus Corporate Jets for maximum passenger comfort in a variety of cabin configurations," the British charter ACMI/specialist said in a statement.

To reflect Titan's broad range of customers, the aircraft will be able to operate in three cabin configurations: a single-class layout with 195; a two-class layout with 16 premium seats and 168 standard seats; and an all-business configuration with 52 fully lie-flat seats.

Titan's two B757-200s are 19.5-years-old on average and are owned by the company.

The addition of the A321neo is part of Titan's broader plan of becoming an all-Airbus operator. According to the ch-aviation fleets advanced module, it already operates one A318-100, two A320-200s, and three A321-200s, but also two B737-400(F)s, one B767-300(ER), and the two B757s. It is in the process of adding its maiden widebody, an A330-200, which is due for delivery in spring.
