Titan Airways has added the first Airbus A321 to its fleet, configured for 212 seats in an all-economy layout.
The Stansted-based carrier is mainly known for charter flights, but also provides rapid response sub-charter services for airlines including British Airways when one of its aircraft goes tech, as this forum discussion illustrates.
Titan currently operates a fleet of ten Airbus and Boeing aircraft, with plans to transition to an all-Airbus fleet in the next three to five years.
The carrier’s A321 is configured in a high-density layout (Airbus states the aircraft can accommodate up to 220 passengers).
If you think that sounds tight, the next generation of A321 aircraft are set to feature even more seats. On its webpage for the single-aisle aircraft Airbus states:
“From 2018, an optimised use of cabin space, increased exit limits and a new cabin door configuration will enable new standard capacities for the A321neo (new engine option) of 206 in a two-class configuration and 240 passengers in high-density”.
