Optimised cabin

Offering one of the most comfortable and quiet cabins in the long-haul and ultra-long haul markets

Airbus’ proven 222-inch fuselage cross-section on the A340 offers one of the most comfortable and quiet cabins in the long-haul and ultra-long haul markets. Like all Airbus aircraft, its widebody cabin is designed to accommodate the modern standard of comfort – an 18-inch wide seat in economy class.  

This interior provides a highly efficient balance between economic efficiency and comfort for demanding passengers.  Seating options range from four- and six-abreast seating in First and Business classes to choices of seven-, eight- and nine-abreast layouts in Economy.   

Contributing to its cleaner and purer environment is a cabin air flow management system with uniform, draft-free air circulation, along with the use of High Efficiency Particulate Air filters (HEPAs) and converters for Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs).   

Features of its light, bright and spacious interior include state-of-the-art lighting with LEDs (light emitting diodes); lateral, indirect and mood styles of lighting; along with smooth contours incorporating softened lines in interior fittings.  Multipurpose stowage zones and bar/social areas add to the cabin creativity offered for A340 operators.   

Additional flexibility is available with Airbus’ innovative approach for use of available space in the jetliner’s lower deck, enabling the installation of lavatories, galleys and crew rest modules. 

FINGER-TOUCH CONTROL

The A340 incorporates a state-of-the-art digital cabin management system for the control of cabin lighting, heating, passenger announcements and other cabin-related tasks.  A touch-screen panel on this Cabin Intercommunication Data System enables rapid, simple and intuitive, control, which maximises aircraft utilisation and contributes to fast airport turnarounds.
