Titan Airways

Titan Airways

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.  The aircraft offers new, pre-reclined comfortable seating throughout on this very modern A320 aircraft, along with a selection of complimentary soft drinks and a downloadable App for you to use on your personal tablet or phone for in-flight entertainment (Android and Apple).

Certain departures, such as October flights, will operate on a larger B767 aircraft which still offers enhanced legroom compared to other charter flights and the excellent level of on-board service that Titan is known for. Entertainment will be through seatback screens with a selection of films on offer.

We have also worked with Titan to develop our Star Class during winter, enabling you to enjoy additional on-board comfort with 2-2 configuration seating, as well as 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."
