First Titan Airways Flight Takes Off Using Sustainable Aviation Fuel

This month Titan Airways operated our first flight using Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF), carrying a delegation from the G20 in Rome to COP26 in Glasgow using one of our 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% SAF blend reduces lifecycle carbon emissions by 28%.  

We are also working with our freight forwarder customer GEODIS who offer a SAF ‘insetting’ solution on their 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% compared to the aircraft they will replace. Once SAF is more widely available, we will be able to further reduce emissions from our operations and play our part in meeting UK 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.

Alastair Willson, Managing Director, Titan Airways

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