About the aircraft When a consortium of European aircraft manufacturers formed Airbus Industrie back in 1970, little did anyone imagine this new company with only one.
Airbus sought to expand its product line and enter the single- aisle narrow- body market. Airbus designers envisioned a 1.
First flown in February 1. Air France in March 1. A3. 20 became an instant hit with operators and passengers alike. The A3. 20 family expanded in 1. A3. 21 which competed directly with the Boeing 7. The A3. 21 achieved success with A3.
In 1. 99. 6, the shorter 1. A3. 19 joined the fleet offering long- range capability of up to 6,5.
LR and CJ versions. To service high- density short- range routes, the 1. A3. 18 was introduced in 2. Manufacturing and construction of the aircraft.
The A3. 20 production line was first located in the original Concorde assembly hall at Toulouse, France, and incorporated contemporary manufacturing technology. While Boeing's 7. A3. 20 reached that number only ten years into production. No other twin- engine single- aisle airliner ever reached such significant production numbers in such a short a period of time.
Today, more than 9,4. A3. 20s have been ordered in four different models, with over 5,5. With its impressive build- rate of 4. A3. 20 series has earned a prominent place in commercial aviation history. Passenger Features.
The A3. 20 series cabins are the widest of any single- aisle jetliner, and offer significant design innovations for unparalleled operational efficiency and passenger comfort. These include wider seats and a 7- inch wider aisle for easier boarding and inflight passenger service. With optional mood lighting, and either four, five, or six- abreast seating depending on class of service, the A3. Future of the aircraft. To remain competitive with a new generation of jetliners, Airbus is developing the A3.

About the aircraft. From the start, development of the 2. A3. 30 and A3. 40 twin- aisle jetliners was aimed at long trans- oceanic flights.
To dramatically prove this point, Airbus launched an ultra- long- range round- trip of a special A3. Paris Air Show with a single stop in Auckland, New Zealand. This high- profile endurance flight was completed in 4. Aside from fleet commonality with cross- crew qualifications for the A3. A3. 30 and A3. 40 share the A3.

All- new are various composite structures, a digital fly- by- wire flight control system, and advanced- technology wing featuring a 3.
Engine choices are the Rolls- Royce Trent 7. General Electric CF- 6- 8. E1, and Pratt & Whitney PW 4. History. When Airbus Industrie launched its next generation of wide- body aircraft in the late- 1.
The argument for how many engines on intercontinental jet airliners dates back to the mid- 1. Mc. Donnell Douglas, Lockheed, and Boeing began developing their first wide- body aircraft. Since twin- engine airliners were not certified to operate over water, these companies opted for three- engine (DC- 1. L- 1. 01. 1) and four- engine designs (7.
Quite obviously, the airplane's configuration never changed once it entered production. Having developed their successful A3.
A3. 10 wide- body twinjets, Airbus changed the game dramatically. By stretching the A3. Originally called the A3. B9, the new twinjet was designated A3. A3. 40. Manufacturing and construction of the aircraft.
A3. 30 and A3. 40 production lines in Toulouse, France, feature the extensive use of new materials and the latest manufacturing processes in both metal and composite structure methodology. A total of 1,2. 46 A3. A3. 40s have been ordered and delivered.
The A3. 30 recently reached its highest- ever production rate of 1. Passenger Features.
The A3. 30 and A3. Airbus offers to its airline customers is the choice of different overhead baggage bin configurations depending on the types of stage lengths and passenger loads being flown. Airlines can opt for cabins with standard high- capacity overhead bins, compact centerline overhead bins, bins with articulating doors that allow higher cabin ceilings, and even a roomy interior with no bins at all. Future of the aircraft.
While the A3. 30 and A3. Regardless of that fact, Airbus undeniably created two successful wide- body airliners that played a pivotal role in the creation of the company's ultimate achievement the 5. A3. 80, the largest commercial airliner ever built. Safety Rating. The A3. A3. 40 has experienced two hull losses with no fatal accidents.
This computes to both a hull loss accident rate and hull loss with fatalities accident rate of 0. A3. 30, and a hull loss accident rate of 0. A3. 40. Airbus A3. Super Jumbo for the Ages. Picture: Airbus. Picture: Airbus. Picture: Airbus. Picture: Airbus.

Manufacturing such a revolutionary airplane required equally revolutionary construction methods. As with other Airbus aircraft, major subassemblies are built in France, Spain, Germany, and the United Kingdom, and then transported to Toulouse. With the A3. 80, however, three new modes of transportation were specifically developed to bring major structural components together for final assembly.
A fleet of outsize ground transporters, large purpose- built cargo ferries, and giant "Beluga" jet transports carry fuselage sections, wing boxes, control surfaces, and other structural components to Toulouse. Passenger Features. The concept of passenger comfort is taken to a new level aboard the A3.
Duty- free shopping, multiple bars and lounges with five- star cuisine, shower spas, and even fully enclosed private luxury suites are just some of the amenities never- before- seen on any commercial airliner.

A3. 80s have been ordered with 9. However, Airbus looks to the future with fervent hope for additional orders from new airline customers.
While Emirates is by far the largest A3. Airbus's break- even figure is undeniable. Safety Rating. On the safety front, the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) is preparing to issue an Airworthiness Directive that will cause airline operators to have to structurally modify the wings of their currently flying A3. Airplanes now on the production line will also have to incorporate these changes, and a total of 1. A3. 80s are expected to be affected ATR 4. ATR 7. 2About the aircraft. ATR 4. 2. The ATR 4.
