Long-haul capabilities

Airbus launched the A340-200 in 1987 as a new-generation aircraft ideal for services on long and thin routes – with a special emphasis on travel over water and across remote areas far from airports. Like all members of the A340 Family, the A340-200 is characterised by its long-haul capabilities – with an extended range of 6,700 nautical miles.

Endless comfort

The A340-200 offers passenger cabin comfort with a seating capacity of around 250 while its 6,700 nautical mile range covers longer, direct routes.

A truly globe-trotting aircraft, the A340-200 ensures that its passengers can experience genuine comfort for a relaxing and enjoyable flight. Boasting one of the quietest and most aerodynamic cabins in the sky, passengers can enjoy a calm and smooth journey that will help them feel at their best both while they’re on board and upon arrival.

Using the optimised 222-inch Airbus widebody cross-section, the A340-200 opens up space for the passenger allowing them to make the most of wider seats. In a six-abreast premium seating in first or business class, every passenger can have a window or aisle seat, while an eight-abreast economy layout offers better comfort and more space than competing aircraft. Its highly flexible cabin interiors also allow it to incorporate modern in-flight entertainment giving passengers many interesting options to help them enjoy their flight.

Non-stop service

Airbus launched the A340-200 in 1987 as a new-generation aircraft ideal for long and thin routes, with a special emphasis on travel over water and across remote areas far from airports. It entered into commercial service in March 1993, and is powered by four efficient CFM International CFM56-5C4 engines that provide a thrust of 34,000 lb.

As the A340 Family’s shortest-fuselage member, the A340-200 has a capacity of around 250 passengers in a typical layout. With its optimal range of 6,700 nautical miles, this jetliner allows airlines to open long-range, direct routes between city pairs that previously needed intermediate stops. It is also capable of flying some of the most challenging routes existing in aviation today.

Proven performer

Like all members of Airbus’ family of modern jetliners, the A340-200 features modern innovations – including fuel-saving aerodynamics and advanced weight-saving materials such as carbon-fibre and increased lower-deck cargo hold efficiency with minimum weight and aerodynamic drag. While commonality across the Airbus family of fly-by-wire aircraft brings important reductions in training and maintenance costs, ensuring the A340-200 holds its value while continuing to generate revenue.

Having flown millions of passengers since its entry into service, the A340-200 remains a testament to the brilliant design and engineering of Airbus’ commercial aircraft. With enduring appeal and benefits to both the airlines who operate it and the passengers who fly on it, it continues to offer a brilliant flying experience on a variety of routes around the world. Versatile enough to fulfill a range of roles from commercial aircraft to business jet, it’s no wonder that it remains a reliable and popular aircraft.
