The A340-300 was Airbus’ initial variant of the A340, launched in 1987, and shares the same fuselage and wing with the smaller A340-200. It typically flies up to 295 passengers a distance of approximately 6,700 nautical miles. Airlines have gradually retired this airframe in favour of twin-engine models, with their enhanced reliability and fuel efficiency. 

Primary operators of the A340-300 include Air France, Lufthansa, and Swiss.
