Titan Airways is a British charter airline based in London and based at London Stansted Airport .


Titan Airways was founded in January 1988 and began flight operations on February 1, 1988. It got its name from the first machine in use, a Cessna 406 Titan. In February 1992 there was a management buy-out . The company is now owned by Gene Willson (67%) and the investment company 3i (33%).

Between February and May 2019, Titan Airways carried out Airbus company air traffic between the production sites in Hamburg-Finkenwerder and Toulouse-Blagnac, which it took over after Germania filed for insolvency .


Titan Airways does not offer any scheduled flights itself, but is mainly active in the demand air traffic, such as ad hoc passenger and cargo charter flights, short-term wet lease flights for other airlines (such as Germanwings , British Airways , Monarch Airlines and easyJet ) and VIP charter.

In addition, Titan Airways carries out deportation flights to Afghanistan, among others on behalf of the German authorities, which the UN Refugee Commissioner UNHCR describes as violating human rights.
