Titan Airways, the London Stansted-based VIP charter specialist, is fine tuning details of an exciting new brand – ‘Titan Airways Executive’ – to better reflect its growing activity serving the corporate aviation market. Its new brand will come on line in the next few months, coinciding with the acceptance of a factory fresh new business aircraft – the Legacy 650, the latest large-cabin size, transatlantic-capable twinjet from Embraer.
Titan Airways Executive expects to be the first operator in the UK to accept delivery of this state-of-the-art aircraft, which it will both manage, crew and operate third party charter flights on behalf of its private owner.
The aircraft will be based at London Stansted and looked after by Inflite, the award-winning Fixed Base Operation (FBO). The Legacy 650 will join Titan’s Beech King Air 350 and its 44-seat VIP Boeing 737-300 in the new Titan Airways Executive stable.
“We are extremely excited about launching this new division of the business, coinciding with 22 years of profitable airline operations,” said Gene Willson, Titan Airways CEO. “We will be unveiling more details as we prepare to accept the aircraft in the coming months,” he said, adding it is the intention that the aircraft will be available for charter from later this year.
Embraer’s Legacy 650 is the latest model of the popular Legacy 600 business jet series. With sophisticated Honeywell avionics and a new Primus Elite flightdeck, it boasts a range of 3,900 nm (7,223 km) with four passengers, or 3,800 nautical miles (7,038 km) with eight passengers, enabling it to fly nonstop from London to New York or Dubai. The aircraft (photo attached) will make its debut at the business aviation industry’s largest show, NBAA in Atlanta, Georgia during 18-21 October.
“This aircraft is going to be a star in our fleet for corporate and leisure groups alike,” said Titan Airways Commercial Director Alastair Kiernan. “As with all aircraft in the Titan fleet, when it enters service the Legacy 650 will be available for short notice, rapid response charter.”
Titan has built its reputation on its unique ‘Go Now’ policy, which guarantees that any of its fleet can be airborne within 60 minutes of flight confirmation.
The new Titan Airways Executive and the Legacy 650 will be formally presented to clients and the charter broker fraternity later this year.
