Titan wins Falklands air bridge contract

6th September 2011 - 07:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The UK Ministry of Defence has awarded the contract to fly the Falklands air bridge to Titan Airways.

The company will use a Boeing 767-300ER on the route from Brize Norton to RAF Mount Pleasant in the Falklands, via Asecencion Island.

Titan's operation began on 4 September.

'The long sectors are exactly what the aircraft is designed for.' said Graham Baguley, pperations director at Titan. 'Having good utilisation for the aircraft during the whole period of the contract means we are optimising our operations.'

Titan's 767 is usually configured with 265 seats, but the MoD has requested the fitment of life-port stretchers and business class seats which will reduce capacity to 200.
