                        A340-300

                        Uniquely matched to the new competitive environment

                        With a service range of 7,400 nautical miles, Airbus’ A340-300 is tailored to meet the needs of the 250-290-seat long-range market – offering direct point-to-point services and increased flight frequencies at lower costs. As flagships with smaller airlines, A340-300s provide vital long-range links to and from less populous cities; while serving as a cost-effective 250-290-seat long-range complement for operators of A320 Family aircraft.

                        Cabin flexibility

                        Beneath its main deck, the A340-300’s large cargo holds provide voluminous capacity to maximise operators’ revenue potential. With large cargo doors on the basic fit, they take industry-standard LD3 containers in side-by-side loading. The jetliner’s forward hold accommodates six 96-inch pallets or 18 LD3 containers, while the aft hold accepts 14 LD3s (or a mix of three 96-inch pallets and two 88-inch pallets).

                        Long-range capability

                        With a service range of 7,400 nautical miles, Airbus’ A340-300 is tailored to meet the needs of the 250-290-seat long-range market – offering direct point-to-point services and increased flight frequencies at lower costs.

                        It thrives in many market environments and often forms a key part of a larger international operation with major and flagship carriers, operating along with other A330 or A340 models.  As flagships with smaller airlines, A340-300s provide vital long-range links to and from less populous cities; while serving as a cost-effective 275-300-seat long-range complement for operators of A320 Family aircraft. 

                        As a result of its four engines, the A340-300 does not require any ETOPS (Extended-range Twin-engine Operational Performance Standards) certification – allowing for quick start-up of long-haul operations. It also has good ‘hot and high’ capability at airports that would be off-limits to other aircraft.

                        Innovation and efficiency

                        The Airbus A340-300 in flight, equipped with CFM engines.

                        Like all members of Airbus’ family of modern jetliners, the A340-300 features a number of key innovations, including fly-by-wire flight controls, which bring increased flight protection as well as weight and cost savings; advanced weight-saving materials such as carbon fibre; and fuel-saving aerodynamics.  Commonality with Airbus’ family of fly-by-wire jetliners also brings important reductions in training and maintenance costs, providing customers with an important competitive advantage.

                        Under the main deck, the A340’s large cargo holds provide voluminous capacity for extra revenue.  With large cargo doors standard, it can accommodate industry-standard LD3 containers in side-by-side loading.  The A340-300’s forward hold can hold six 96-inch pallets or 18 LD3 containers, while the aft hold accepts 14 LD3s or a mix of three 96-inch pallets and two 88-inch pallets. The A340-300 demonstrates outstanding environmental efficiencies, including low fuel-burn and reduced engine emissions, while the decreased noise signature comfortably meets international standards. The A340-300 provides the best economy in its class, reaching a 5 per cent lower fuel per trip compared to competing aircraft.

                        Cabin comfort

                        The four-engine A340-300 features a wonderfully quiet cabin, a key element for relaxing on long-haul operations. Seating 250-290 passengers in a typical configuration, or up to 440 travellers in a high-density arrangement, everyone flying can enjoy the extra personal space available in the wide-body twin-aisle cabin. With wider seats and the possibility of including a wide variety of customised interiors and in-flight entertainment options, passengers can settle in and enjoy their flight.

                        With enduring appeal to both passengers and businesses, the A340-300 continues to be a popular aircraft. With such superior levels of space and comfort, time on-board flies by and everyone can reach their destination feeling refreshed and relaxed.
