Stansted-based Titan Airways acquired its first BAe 146 in 1996. Over the years, Titan operated a total of five BAe 146s and one RJ100, including one series 200 (G-ZAPL, msn E2030), three series 200QCs (G-ZAPK msn E2148; G-ZAPN, msn E2119; and G-ZAPO, msn E2176), one series 200QT (G-ZAPR, msn E2114), one series 300 (G-BUHB, msn E3183), and an RJ100 (G-POWF, E3373). For many years, the trio of 146QCs were the backbone of the airline’s fleet, operating a mix of long-term contracts and short-term charters. Eventually, though, the airline’s growth required larger aircraft, which gradually displaced the 146s. The airline ended over 17 years of BAe 146 operations in November 2013.
