Titan Airways announced on Friday the addition of its third aircraft for the subsidiary it has set up in Malta.
The aircraft in question is one of its Airbus A321 P2F aircraft that previously operated under its British AOC.
About The Third Aircraft for Titan Airways Malta…
The third aircraft for the Malta-based subsidiary of Titan Airways is 9H-ZTC, a 23.1-year-old aircraft with the carrier at the time of writing.
As per Planespotters.net, the aircraft started out life with Airtours International Airways in June 2000 as G-NIKO, which is the registration it has had for most of its life.
By May 2002, the aircraft was handed over to MyTravel Airways before heading to Thomas Cook Airlines following the merger between the two sides.
The Malta-based aircraft remained with Thomas Cook until October 2019, when it was returned to lessor BBAM following the fall of the carrier in the UK.
By March 2021, the aircraft was then delivered to Titan Airways and operated a stint for Amerijet International between April 2021 and May 2022.
Now, with the registration change, the aircraft has had its tail painted to represent the Malta crosses and is the first of the three to have its tail painted.
9H-ZTA, the first aircraft under the AOC, will have the crosses painted this weekend whilst it is undergoing maintenance.
Titan Airways also confirmed that a fourth aircraft is now in the stages of conversion, with this due for delivery soon.
