The Airbus A340 is a long-range, four-engine, wide-body commercial passenger jet airliner developed and produced by the European aerospace company Airbus. The A340 has earned its reputation as a true globe-trotter – flying some of the world’s longest and most demanding routes while providing superior operating economics – even in challenging “hot and high” conditions – and excellent passenger comfort. As a result of its four engines, the A340-300 does not require any ETOPS (Extended-range Twin-engine Operational Performance Standards) certification – allowing for quick start-up of long-haul operations. It also has good ‘hot and high’ capability at airports that would be off-limits to other aircraft. The A340-300 provides the best economy in its class, reaching a 5 per cent lower fuel per trip compared to competing aircraft. The A340-300 demonstrates outstanding environmental efficiencies, including low fuel burn and reduced engine emissions, while its reduced noise signature comfortably meets international standards.
