Airbus A300-600

Manufacturer: Airbus S.A.S., European Union


When designing the A300-600, the front and center sections of the fuselage and the wing of the A3300B2 / B4 aircraft were used, and the tail of the fuselage was taken from the A310 aircraft. The cockpit is similar to the A310. The fuselage is increased by half a meter.

The liner made its first flight on July 8, 1983, and began shipping since March 1984.

The aircraft received its development in the A300-600R model – an aircraft with a longer flight range. The first flight of this modification was completed on December 9, 1987, and the first delivery – April 20, 1988.
