The A300-600 jetliner’s wide-body fuselage cross-section, high versatility and low operating costs make it an ideal regional freighter.

In the A300-600F variant, this aircraft carries significant tonnage and volume on the main deck, as well as in the generous underfloor holds – accommodating the full range of existing cargo containers and pallets. With its range of more than 4,000 nautical miles, the A300-600 has the capability to fly all major regional routes of the world’s principal economic regions.

Tailor-made solution

The A300-600F can carry significant tonnage and volume on its main deck, as well as in the large underfloor holds – accommodating the full range of existing cargo containers and pallets. Derived from Airbus’ highly-reliable A300-600, this freighter provides ideal service standards for operators’ time-sensitive shipments.

The interliner

The A300-600 jetliner’s wide-body fuselage cross-section, high versatility and low operating costs make it an ideal regional freighter. In the A300-600F variant, this aircraft carries significant tonnage and volume on the main deck, as well as in the generous underfloor holds – accommodating the full range of existing cargo containers and pallets.

With its range of more than 4,000 nautical miles, the A300-600 has the capability to fly all major regional routes of the world’s principal economic regions. Since it is a derivative of the A300-600 passenger aircraft, this freighter brings the best service standards for time-sensitive shipments.

Loading access

Total cargo volume available on the A300-600F is 115.7 square metres. The aircraft is fitted with a 141 X 101-inch primary cargo door on the forward fuselage that facilitates the loading of industry-standard containers and pallets on the main deck, while large doors for the lower cargo holds facilitate the handling of freight in these below-deck zones.

On the main deck, the A300-600F’s capacity is 15 96 X 96 X125-inch pallets in single-row loading, or the side-by-side loading of up to 21 pallets sized at 88 X 96 X 125-inches. The underfloor cargo holds accept both LD3 containers (a total of 23) and pallets.

Setting the standards

The A300-600F is part of the A300/A310 product line and incorporates Airbus technologies that have made these aircraft the standard-setters for performance, reliability and profitability. This includes fuel-saving aerodynamics such as wingtip devices; electrical signalling for slats, flaps and spoilers; the use of six identical electronic flight instruments on the flight deck; and automatic windshear protection.

During a long and successful production run, Airbus produced a total of 816 A300/A310s. Some 300 of these aircraft are expected to remain in service beyond 2025.
