London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) April 25, 2008 -- The Baltic Air Charter Association (BACA), the world's largest and most prestigious network for aircharter professionals is pleased to acknowledge the recent achievement of long-standing member Titan Airways. On his recent trip to the United States, UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown chose to fly aboard a Titan operated Boeing 757 â 200.
The Titan aircraft departed from the Royal Suite at Londonâs Heathrow airport on the 16th April 2008 direct to New York Newark airport. The whole trip, which lasted just 4 days also took the Prime Minister to Andrews Air Force Base in Washington DC and then on to Boston.

âThe flights were a great success for Titan Airways,â said BACA Chairman Markham Jackson. Jackson further noted, âFor the fourth time, Titan Airways have been included in the Times Profit Track 100. Only three companies have appeared on Profit Track 100 in the past nine years. This is a significant accomplishment for Titan and our industry.â
