Titan states the aircraft has been used on flights from London Gatwick to Freetown in Sierra Leone and then on to Banjul in Gambia, Dakar in Senegal and Accra in Ghana.  

It is to be recalled that Gambia Bird scaled back its operations in March when one of its two A319s sustained undisclosed damage during operations forcing the aircraft to be ferried back to its base in Germany. Since repaired, it has returned to service with parent company, Germania (ST).
