Titan Airways is now operating its A321 fleet on behalf of the British government, taking on some transport duties previously undertaken by the Royal Air Force.
The British government has access to four passenger-configured BAe 146s (due to retire shortly) and the ‘VIP Voyager’, also known as ‘Vespina’, which acts as a tanker aircraft and transport aircraft for senior officials.

The new A321 aircraft has been painted with a livery resembling ‘VIP Voyager’. An image of an A321 aircraft with a livery similar to that used on the Voyager aircraft used by the Royal Air Force to transport senior Government ministers and members of the Royal Family surfaced online last month.

According to the ch-aviation, “it is unclear if the aircraft will be exclusively operated for the government or also be available for Titan Airways’ in-house charter flights when not needed for official duties. The carrier did not respond to ch-aviation’s query in that regard”.
Titan Airways is expecting the delivery of its second A321-200NX(LR) shortly.
