Titan experiences a return to form in the final quarter
The first quarter of 2020 was fairly routine for Titan, but MD Sakeer Sheikh admits that Q2 and Q3 were a ‘total washout’. It has however added five jets of late in Indonesia and Dubai, and brighter times are ahead.

Dubai-headquartered Titan Aviation, which operates across Asia Pacific, the Middle East and the US, has added five more managed jets to its roster since October 2020. The additions comprise a Legacy 600, a Citation Latitude and a Hawker 850XP based in Indonesia, and a Phenom 300E and a Hawker 900XP based in Dubai.

MD Sakeer Sheikh says the company's most popular aircraft are the Legacy 650 and Hawker 850XP/900XP. “Both types serve the clients extremely well, and they fulfil specific mission requirements,” he says. “Owner flights are their regular mission, and customers have business reasons to fly around their respective areas. We also organise third party air ambulance flights and recently operated one for a high profile client who had multiple health complications. This was very challenging, especially with the additional COVID complications.”

The first quarter of 2020 was fairly routine for Titan, but Sheikh admits that Q2 and Q3 were a ‘total washout’: “Since Q4, we have been extremely busy, and I have spoken to lot of my industry colleagues who have confirmed that it is the same for their business as well. This is a very positive indication. We are scaling up after making certain organisational changes during Q2 and Q3, and we hope to achieve our best performance in the months to come. There is positivity in the air, and we hope that the introduction of the vaccine will help to sustain it.

“After what we saw in the year 2020, it is best not to plan too much. COVID taught us many lessons, and many of us are learning to accept and adjust our business model accordingly. We want to sustain the growth, build adequate infrastructure and resources, serve the clients and operate under strict compliance of health and safety.”
