A340-300

Outstanding range capability

With a service range of 7,400 nautical miles, Airbus’ A340-300 is tailored to meet the needs of the 300-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 carriers, operating along with other A330 or A340 models.  As flagships with smaller airlines, the A340-300 provide vital long-range links to and from less populous cities; while it serves as the most cost-effective 300-seat long-range complement for operators of A320 Family aircraft.

The four-engine A340-300 features one of the quietest cabins in the sky – a key element for relaxing long-haul operations – as well as the best economy in its class, which makes this jetliner an airline favourite. The A340-300 seats 300 passengers in a typical two-class cabin configuration, while accommodating up to 440 travellers in a high-density arrangement.

Inovation and efficiency

Inovation and efficiency

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.

The A340-300 demonstrates outstanding environmental efficiencies, including low fuel burn and reduced engine emissions, while its reduced noise signature comfortably meets international standards.

Cabin versatility

The A340-300 cabin’s flexibility allows for a wide variety of customised cabin interiors. Seat pitch can be adapted in units of one inch, while galleys, lavatories and stowage areas can be located in different numbers, groupings and locations – providing excellent versatility for operators of this widebody Airbus jetliner.  In addition, state-of-the-art in-flight entertainment can be incorporated into the seats or mounted on partitions below overhead stowage areas.

Under the main deck, the A340’s large cargo holds provide voluminous capacity for extra revenue.  With large cargo doors as basic fit, they take industry-standard LD3 containers in side-by-side loading.  The A340-300’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.
