Airbus A310-200

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


Initially, the aircraft was developed under the brand name A300B10 – as a shortened modification of the A300 series. However, the A310 has a large number of significant differences from its ancestor.

The fuselage of the liner is shortened by seven and a half meters. The capacity of the liner decreased to about 200-230 passengers. New wings have also been developed. Additional changes aimed at improving fuel efficiency were introduced in 1986: swept aerodynamic surfaces – washers at the wing ends, vertical tailings made of carbon fiber, and wheel brakes made of composite materials.

The A310 made its first flight on April 3, 1982, and since 1983 it has been supplied to airlines.

Based on the passenger version of the aircraft, a passenger-and-freight version of the A310-200C was developed, equipped with a side cargo door, and designed to carry goods up to 40.3 tons, as well as an A310-200F cargo plane with a payload of 43 tons.
