Recognition similarity

  • ICAO Code: A346

    Notes: The A340-500 has shorter fuselage.

  • ICAO Code: A343

    Notes: The A340-500 has wider wingspan and longer fuselage. Difficult to distinguish unless next to each other.

IATA

340 / 345

Accommodation

Flightcrew of two and typical 313 passengers in two classes, upt to 359 in high density configuration.

Notes

Ultra long range wide-body airliner. Entered commercial service in end 2002 with Air Canada. Stretched development of A340-300. It has the longest range within the A330/340 family of aircraft. Together A340-500 and 600 - a total of 131 aircraft ordered, 130 are in operation (November 2018).

Alternative names

  • AIRBUS A-340-500
