Titan Airways bolsters fleet with BAe Avro RJ100 for Gulf missions

Posted 31 January 2011 · Add Comment

VIP charter specialist, Titan Airways is adding an Avro RJ100 regional jet to its fleet

The aircraft will join Titan’s 12-strong London Stansted-based charter fleet and will initially be used on the airline’s UK Ministry of Defence contract to provide passenger and freight capacity in the Gulf region.

The aircraft, registration G-POWF, can provide flexible seating with variable geometry seats, configured for all economy service with 110 seats, six abreast or 55 business class and 43 economy seats if desired.  

“Fortunately for us this aircraft became available on the market at the right time and it is ideal for our needs,” said Alastair Kiernan, Titan Airways’ Commercial Director.  The RJ100, the biggest and latest version of the BAe146 family combines rugged performance with short runway characteristics capable of serving airports including London City. "

“With its excellent short runway capabilities, variable seat geometry and a range with maximum payload of 1,300 nm, the RJ100 will sit very comfortably in the Titan fleet.  We anticipate plenty of interest for ad hoc and ACMI operations,” added Kiernan.  

As with all the Titan fleet, including the recently introduced, brand new Embraer Legacy 650, under its Titan Executive Airways brand, the RJ100 will be available for short notice, rapid response charter and sub-charter.  Titan’s unique ‘Go Now’ policy guarantees that any of its fleet can be airborne within 60 minutes of flight confirmation.
