About the Airbus A-340

This European-built aircraft was designed to compete with the venerable Boeing 747. The A-340 cruises at 914 km/hr (571 mph) and carries up to 335 passengers. It has a range of 14,400 km (9000 mi.).

At 63.7 m (209 ft) in length and with a 60.0 m (197.8 ft) wingspan, it is the largest airliner ever built in Europe. It was first flown in 1991, jointly developed by France, the Netherlands, Spain, Great Britain and Germany. Economically fabricated to facilitate training and maintenance, it shares a nearly identical cockpit with the A-330 and is the modern successor to the Airbus A-300.
