Airbus A340-300

The Airbus Industry A340-300 with its French elegance is an absolute copy of its counterpart А330-300 by external parameters and is an improved version of А340-200. However, the most interesting is in fact that this powerful liner capable of passenger and charter flights is equipped with four General Electric CFM56-5C turbojet engines with thrust of 15 422 kilograms of force. The Airbus A340-300 boasts its payload of 41 000 kilograms or comfortable accommodation of 295 passengers in economy/business/first class cabin.

The maximum all-up weight of the Airbus A340 300 is 275 tones; hereby the liner is capable of a non-stop flight range up to 13 520 kilometers. This version design was aimed at covering the need in passenger aviation for long-haul service. Sales of Airbus A340-300 jetliners conform fully to non-stop flight requirements with 300 passengers aboard based upon point-to-point system, instead of hub-and-spoke. The difference between these systems is that in the first case the flight is performed non-stop from the point of departure to the point of destination. In the second case the liner arrives to the hub airport for change to another route. This airport has many connection flights and high passenger traffic density. The disadvantage is in dependence on weather conditions on one of the routes, and one flight delay causes a delay of dependent routs. Apart from point-to-point services, the Airbus A340-300 steadily services routes with large passenger traffic at lower costs. This was appreciated by many international air companies interested in sales of Airbus A340-300 jetliners being a leading flagship among big air carriers. Considering fuel saving in this version, the Airbus A340-300 is also in demand in medium populated cities, where it performs medium and long-haul operations due to its cost effectiveness. Being the most energy-conserving class-leading passenger liner, the Airbus A340-300 delivers 5% fuel saving as compared to its competitors.

The Airbus A340-300 does not require any ETOPS (Extended-range Twin-engine Operational Performance Standards) regulating the flight route formation so that the aircraft is always at the distance of definite flight time to the first airport, should one of engines fail. The 4 engines make it possible to go beyond these conventions, without damage to flight safety. Simply said, preparing to fly by the Airbus A340-300 takes not much time, which means that it may perform urgent charter flights for the whole corporations.

Flight safety is ensured by excellent “hot and high” opportunities allowing the Airbus A340-300 using the airports at high altitude or in hot countries. Air density is reduced at high altitude and with hot air, thus reducing the liner’s efficiency and even causing emergency engine failure. Maximum height for the Airbus A340-300 is 11 800 meters at coursing speed of 937 kilometers an hour or maximal acceleration up to 976 kilometers an hour.

The Airbus A340 300 cabin layout for a low cost provides for three rows of triple seats of 16.7 inches wide. The standard economy class is represented by three rows of 18.1 inch seats, with two at windows and four in the medium row. The premium economy class has three rows of 20-inche triple seats centrally and double-seats on each side. The business class area features the more comfortable seats with 22 inches seat back, with two seats in the three rows divided by the two aisles. The first class has very comfortable seats 27 inches wide, suitable for rest. Here there are only four-abreast seats. For privacy, the seats closer to the window could be chosen as there are no noisy neighbors here and enough space to recline the seat for sleep. The A340-300 can boast one of the quietest cabins and plenty of interior design options according to custom-tailored project, as well as additional hold under the main deck with large cargo doors to take 18 LD3 containers.
