Titan Airways tries Airbus freighters
ST Engineering, Airbus and their joint venture Elbe Flugzeugwerke (EFW) recently redelivered an A321 passenger-to-freighter aircraft to the lease management company BBAM Limited Partnership. This is the first A321P2F redelivery made to BBAM, with several more units to come as contracted with EFW. The aircraft will be leased to Titan Airways.
The British charter airline, which currently operates two B737-400F, will shortly take delivery of its second A321-200F, and a third unit will enter into conversion this year. Managing director Alastair Willson: "The A321P2F will enable us to utilise all the benefits of this type into our air freight activities including best-in-class economics, reduced noise, a lower carbon footprint and real time health monitoring, ensuring the highest levels of reliability."
