Titan Airways wins Best Charter Airline award
Titan Airways’ operations director Graham Baguley accepted the Best Passenger Charter Airline award at the annual Baltic Air Charter Association (BACA) awards luncheon at the Guildhall in London. Thanking the 200-plus strong industry guests for their votes, Baguley also highlighted that the entire industry needs to ‘get behind British industry and buy British.’
Baguley said “In this tough economic climate, which has regrettably caused the demise of many British airlines, we’re proud to be celebrating a quarter of a century of operations next year.” Established in 1988 by current owner Gene Willson, Titan Airways has gone from strength to strength and today boasts a fleet of 12 aircraft.
The largest aircraft in Titan’s jet fleet, a Boeing 767-300ER is now available for a new role following the successful completion of a 12-month contract serving the Falkland Islands on behalf of the MoD.
“This modern widebodied jet is now available for short, medium or long term lease and also ad hoc air charter,” said Alastair Kiernan, Titan Airways commercial director “Its superb range and modern cabin makes it an ideal choice for long-haul charter solutions beyond Europe. With a maximum of 265 leather seats and seat back in-flight entertainment the Boeing 767-300ER provides passengers with plenty of room to relax and enjoy Titan’s high standards of service while on board.”
