Titan Airways operated its first flight in November using sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), carrying a delegation from the G20 in Rome to COP26 in Glasgow using one of its new Airbus A321neoLR aircraft.


The SAF was sourced from Air BP and is made from sustainable feedstocks, including used cooking oil. The use of the 35 percent SAF blend reduces lifecycle carbon emissions by 28 percent.


Titan Airways is also working with its freight forwarder customer GEODIS, which offers an SAF “insetting” solution on its transcontinental all-cargo flights operated by Titan Airways on the Airbus A330-300P2F. Customers can “book and claim” SAF to cover the CO2 emitted through the transport of their shipment.


“Our ongoing investment in the latest technology passenger and freighter aircraft, such as the A321neos, will enable us to reduce emissions by up to 30 percent compared to the aircraft they will replace,” said Alastair Willson, managing director of Titan Airways. “Once SAF is more widely available, we will be able to further reduce emissions from our operations and play our part in meeting U.K. Aviation’s net zero emission targets. I am delighted that our customers and suppliers share our desire to offer solutions to reduce the impact of flight operations on the environment.”


In the past 18 months Titan Airways has introduced two Airbus A321P2F aircraft, as well two new A321neo’s and an A330-300P2F, as part of its ongoing strategy to operate a modern, fuel-efficient all-Airbus passenger and cargo fleet. It is also working with Air BP and other providers to offer customers the ability to book SAF to reduce the impact on the environment of transporting their passengers and cargo on chartered flights.
