Airbus A310-300

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


In 1982-83, Airbus Industrie, based on the A310-200, began developing a variant of the A310-300 aircraft for operation on long-haul routes. The main difference of the A310-300 aircraft is the presence of an additional fuel tank with a capacity of 6100 liters in the tail unit with the ability to pump fuel for optimal balancing of the aircraft in flight. At the ends of the wing, small swept aerodynamic surfaces (washers) were installed, which later began to be installed on the A310-200 as well.

The first flight was completed on July 8, 1985.

There is a cargo modification.
