We believe a flight should be enjoyed, not endured. Since October 2015 we have been partnering with prestigious charter airline Titan Airways for our London Gatwick flying, offering the most comfortable direct flights to Banjul twice weekly during the winter.Titan pride themselves on their high standards of customer service and punctuality and have gained an excellent reputation in the industry and with customers over the last 26 years, having won the Best Passenger Charter Airline Award on multiple occasions.
This very modern aircraft is used for the majority of our flights and offers new-style, pre-reclined comfortable seating throughout (3-3 configuration), along with a selection of complimentary soft drinks and a downloadable App for you to access a wide variety of onboard entertainment on your personal tablet or phone (Android and Apple - use your own headphones or these can be purchased on board). The B757 aircraft shares many of the attributes of the A320 aircraft with the same in-flight entertainment App and 3-3 configuration.
Certain departures, such as October and Christmas flights, will operate on a larger B767 aircraft due to increased demand for seats. This is a popular wide-bodied aircraft (2-3-2 configuration) and provides the excellent level of on-board service that Titan is known for, with complimentary soft drinks as above. Entertainment will be via seat back screens throughout the aircraft, with a centrally controlled entertainment programme, and headsets will be provided.
We have also worked with Titan to develop our Star Class during winter, enabling you to enjoy additional on-board comfort. This has 2-2 configuration seating on the A320/B757 aircraft with a table between whereas the B767 aircraft offers a choice of either window/aisle seats or middle seats (3 between 2). This upgraded service provides additional benefits both on and off the aircraft. For further details on what is included please see our Airport and Flight Upgrades page.
"Great service, really good food and clean and comfortable, flying Titan is the perfect way to enjoy getting to The Gambia."
