Efficient lift for the long-haul

The Airbus A340 opened true long-haul operations upon its service entry, and together with the A330, has become the best-selling widebody jetliner family of all time. 

A340s fly on every continent, on routes shorter than 150 nm. and over 8,000 nm. with 99 per cent fleet reliability. With four engines, the A340 avoids ETOPS constraints and offers superior performance from “hot and high” airports.

The A340 continues to provide efficient lift for long-haul operations with a modern, comfortable cabin that can offer the latest in in-flight entertainment and further maximise revenue with excellent cargo capability.

At today’s fuel prices, the A340 is increasingly attractive as the cost of operation is greatly reduced, while its range, performance and capacity capabilities make it a very appealing value proposition for operators.

Composed of four variants – the A340-200, A340-300, A340-500 and A340-600 – A340 Family aircraft are available at competitive rates, offering attractive and efficient jetliners for carriers looking at long-haul market opportunities.

residual value

Thanks to its design philosophy, the Airbus product line – which ranges in capacity from 100 to more than 500 seats – is unique in offering airlines the highest possible degree of commonality in airframes, on-board systems, cockpits and handling characteristics. 

Airbus jetliners serve short, medium, long and ultra-long distance routes with the best in operational economy and passenger comfort. The Airbus sales success – and the broad operator and geographic base of its aircraft – is proof of this. 

Another important consideration for the value of used aircraft is their potential for freighter conversion, especially for efficient and cost-effective widebody aircraft. Older A300s and A310s have made a successful transition from the passenger to cargo role, and are used by numerous airlines on short, medium and longer-haul operations.  

All Airbus widebody aircraft have optimised fuselage cross-sections, offering full interline capability, which creates good potential for freighter conversions at the appropriate time.
