A300-600R

The A300-600R variant of Airbus’ cornerstone A300 entered commercial service in 1988, bringing increased range for this twin-engine jetliner from the fuel trim tank located in its tail. From that point forward, all new production of A300-600s became A300-600Rs.

Lasting comfort

The A300-600’s wide-body twin-aisle cabin offers passengers a wider seat and more personal space than its competitors; meaning everyone can simply settle in and enjoy their flight. Capable of incorporating the latest in-flight entertainment and comfort, this aircraft continues to welcome passengers on-board for an enjoyable and relaxing experience.

As one of the original aircraft on which Airbus built its reputation, the fact that it is still utilised by carriers and enjoyed by customers is a testament to its quality, reliability and enduring appeal. This is an aircraft that set new standards when it entered into service and its appeal remains high today.

 

A300-600

Reliable and proven

As the leading member of Airbus’ mid-size aircraft family, the A300-600 offers 8% lower operating costs per seat than its nearest competitor – providing a clear profit advantage in the jetliner category.  It uses Airbus’ proven 222-inch wide-body fuselage cross-section for significant versatility in seating configurations, and accommodates industry-standard LD3 containers/freight pallets in the spacious lower-deck holds. The A300-600’s excellent range was further increased with the A300-600R variant, which incorporates an additional trim fuel tank in the horizontal tail.  A typical seating arrangement fits between 210 and 250 passengers in a three-class layout, carried over non-stop distances of more than 4,000 km.

Cabin flexibility

Like all wide-body jetliners in Airbus’ A300/A310 and A330/A340 Families, the A300-600R has the seating layout flexibility to meet a full range of market demands while also catering to changing trends and new classes of service.  It can be configured for six-abreast in true international-standard first or premium business class; eight abreast seating in economy; and nine-abreast high-density seating for excellent comfort standards and minimum seat-mile costs in scheduled service, charter flights and shuttle operations.

Airbus built A300-600R as part of its pioneering A300/A310 product line, which set the standards for modern, medium-sized jetliners.  As a result, it incorporates such technologies as automatic windshear protection; electrical signaling for slats, flaps and spoilers; and fuel-saving wingtip devices.  This contributes to the aircraft’s proven record for performance, reliability and profitability. 

A total of 816 A300s and A310s were delivered in the various versions of these jetliners built by Airbus, with an estimated 300 of them expected to remain in service after 2025.
