With a service range of more than 7,400 nautical miles, Airbus A340-300 is tailored to meet the needs of the 300-seat long-range market – offering direct point-to-point services and increased flight frequencies at lower costs.
It thrives in many market environments and often forms a key part of a larger international operation with major carriers, operating along with other A330 or A340 models. As flagships with smaller airlines, the A340-300 provide vital long-range links to and from less populous cities; while it serves as the most cost-effective 300-seat long-range complement for operators of A320 Family aircraft.
The four-engine A340-300 features one of the quietest cabins in the sky – a key element for relaxing long-haul operations – as well as the best economy in its class, which makes this jetliner an airline favourite. The A340-300 seats 295 passengers in a typical three-class cabin configuration, while a two-class layout comfortably accommodates as many as 335 travellers.
Note: 4R-ALG and 4R-ADG have fully flat beds in Business Class. 4R-ABM is presently the only A320 with IFE in Economy Class.

As a piece of applied science the aeroplane has a place alongside the wheel, gunpowder, the printing press and the steam engine as one of the great levers of change in world history. The effect of aircraft on the way we live has been profound: they have shrunk the world, mingling previously isolated cultures, they have added a menacing dimension to warfare, spawned new technologies, created new economic zones and given us a toehold in Space.
