The Airbus A300-600 was a member of Airbus’ mid-size aircraft family which offered 8% lower operating costs per seat. A typical seating arrangement fits between 210 and 250 passengers in a three-class layout, carried over non-stop distances of more than 4,000 km. Additionally, its 222-inch wide-body fuselage cross-section accommodates industry-standard LD3 containers/freight pallets in the spacious lower-deck holds.
The A300-600’s wide-body twin-aisle cabin offers passengers a wider seat and more personal space than its competitors; meaning everyone can simply settle in and enjoy their flight. Capable of incorporating the latest in-flight entertainment and comfort, this aircraft continues to welcome passengers on board for an enjoyable and relaxing experience.
As one of the original aircraft on which Airbus built its reputation, the fact that it is still utilized by carriers and enjoyed by customers is a testament to its quality, reliability, and enduring appeal. This is an aircraft that set new standards when it entered into service and its appeal remains high today.
Like all wide-body jetliners in Airbus’ A300/A310 and A330/A340 Families, the A300-600R has the seating layout flexibility to meet a full range of market demands while also catering to changing trends and new classes of service. It can be configured for six-abreast in true international-standard first or premium business class; eight abreast seating in the economy; and nine-abreast high-density seating for excellent comfort standards and minimum seat-mile costs in scheduled service, charter flights, and shuttle operations.
Airbus built A300-600R as part of its pioneering A300/A310 product line, which set the standards for modern, medium-sized jetliners. As a result, it incorporates such technologies as automatic wind shear protection; electrical signaling for slats, flaps, and spoilers; and fuel-saving wingtip devices. This contributes to the aircraft’s proven record for performance, reliability, and profitability.
A total of 816 A300s and A310s were delivered in the various versions of these jetliners built by Airbus, with an estimated 300 of them expected to remain in service after 2025.
