Longest fuselage

The super-stretch A340-600 is Airbus’ longest jetliner operating today, with an overall fuselage length of 75.36 metres. The aircraft’s capacity is between 320 and 370 seats in a typical layout, with up to 475 passengers accommodated in a high-density configuration – providing an ideal mix of capacity and efficiency for operators across the globe.

Comfort and space

The A340-600 is the largest-capacity member of the A340 Family. With an overall length of 75.36 metres, and a seating capacity between 320 and 370 passengers in a typical three-class layout or 475 in high-density seating – while keeping the Airbus standard 18-inch wide seat comfort in economy class. Its versatility and flexibility allow it to be effectively utilised as both a commercial aircraft or as a business or government jet. 

With more space in the cabin, passengers can expect to enjoy more room for themselves. The A340-600 can also incorporate recently innovated modern technology; meaning that everyone on board can relax and unwind with some of the latest entertainment options. This super-stretch aircraft provides operators with unrivalled standards of space, comfort and amenities in each class of service, along with twice the underfloor cargo capacity of comparable airliners.

Increased range

Airbus’ A340-600 is an ultra-long-haul leader, with a range of 7,900 nautical miles.

The jetliner’s four Rolls-Royce Trent 500 engines use only 56,000 lbs. of their certified 60,000 lbs. of thrust, resulting in longer on-wing lives. Furthermore, the use of four engines – as opposed to two larger ones – allows for a 13 per cent reduction in maintenance costs for operators.

In terms of range, the A340-600 offers unmatched operational flexibility on non-stop flights over remote areas such as oceans and mountain ranges, allowing for operations that are not subject to ETOPS (Extended-range Twin-engine Operational Performance Standards) regulations. This enables airlines to fly more direct routes – even long distances over water or on segments far from airports – saving travel time and cutting fuel consumption.

Aircraft commonality

The A340-600 also includes state-of-the-art technologies such as weight-saving composite structures; a fuel-saving aerodynamic design; along with pilot-friendly cockpits, flight controls and systems – all of which significantly enhance the A340-600’s long-range capabilities and overall cost-efficiency. In the secondary market, the A340-600 is ideal for replacing competing aircraft, with 20 per cent lower fuel per trip and a more modern cabin with the latest technology. 

True to Airbus’ unique family concept, it also offers an exceptional degree of operational commonality with all of the company’s fly-by-wire aircraft – allowing pilots to transition from one type to another with minimum training time. The A340 Family’s enduring quality is further proof of the cutting-edge design, innovation and manufacture at the heart of Airbus’ business. This aircraft continues to fly and delight passengers that used to the highest standards of comfort while offering significant advantages to airlines and operators.
