boosting earning power

The excellent underfloor cargo-carrying capabilities of A340 Family aircraft boost their revenue-earning power on daily operations with airlines around the world.

 Thanks to Airbus’ trademark 222-inch fuselage cross-section, the front and rear cargo holds on A340 jetliners accept a full range of underfloor cargo containers and pallets – including the LD-3, which is the most common container in the world with more than 200,000 in use worldwide. 

With volume for 60-100 per cent more freight than its closest competitors, the four jetliners in the A340 Family offer unrivalled operating economics.

High capacity

The A340-200, A340-300, A340-500 and A340-600 all are able to accommodate significantly more cargo on passenger services than their closest rivals. For example, the A340-600 can carry up to 19,700 kg. of freight – with a full load of passengers and baggage – compared to just 11,400 kg. of freight carried by its competitor.
