EBACE: Titan Aviation secures new international AOCs and announces growth strategy

Posted 30 May 2018 · Add Comment

Titan Aviation has secured two new international Air Operator Certificates (AOC) and laid out its global growth strategy at EBACE 2018.

Having recently obtained an AOC from San Marino and FAA Part 135 charter operator certification, adding to its existing EASA, Cayman and DGCA accreditations, Titan Aviation’s immediate growth strategy has already seen the Dubai-headquartered company - now in its 14th year of operation with Titan Aviation India launching nine years ago - open eight new bases across Europe and the USA, and hugely strengthen its operations team.

“We are growing and expanding into the global market with the latest two certifications facilitating our international aircraft management and charter business with aircraft registered in San Marino or the USA now flying all over the world,” said Captain Sakeer C. Sheik, managing director, Titan Aviation.

With offices in San Marino, Italy, Germany, France, the UK, Florida, New Jersey and New York, Titan now has 25 aircraft in its globally managed fleet, including Lineage 1000, Bombardier Global 6000, Legacy 650 and Gulfstream, with several available for charter.

“Our target is to have 20 jets under management in Europe within two years and 50 in the USA within the same timescale of 2020,” explained Sheik. “The new AOCs and offices leave us well placed to reach these aims. We are now servicing the main European and American business and leisure destinations preferred by our clients in the Middle East and India, while providing seamless access to and from the USA and Europe.”

Titan’s new global operations team heading up the growth programme includes: Captain Joachim Begründe who becomes Head of Europe Base; Henri Lauras as President of Aircraft Sales; Ilaria Cecere who takes on the mantle of Support Services Manager for Europe; James Coak who becomes VP Business Development; Horm Irani, General Manager and Head of US Base; Louis Ridley, Chief Pilot, and Steve Zirelli who joins the Titan Board in the USA

“This is a highly-skilled cadre of multi-national experts who bring a deep understanding of US, European and global aviation to the business. As we look to greatly widen our wing print within a jet-speed timeframe, Titan is now offering 360-degree aviation solutions around-the-clock,” said Sheik. 

Titan’s international growth also includes expanding its influence into the medevac arena, particularly in the UAE where a gap in the market has arisen with the withdrawal of Abu Dhabi’s Royal Jet from the sector. “We are looking at medevac aircraft that can also be converted into a VIP charter aircraft – and we are looking far beyond the Middle East, with our current footprint which is truly global,” added Sheik.
