The Airbus A340 is a long-range, four-engine, wide-body commercial passenger jet which typically seats up to 375 passengers in the standard variants and 440 in the stretched -600 series. Depending on the model, it has a range of between 6,700 to 9,000 nm (12,400 to 16,670 km).

The shortest A340-200 measured 59.4 m (195 ft), and offers a 6,700 nm (12,400 km) range with 250 seats in 3-class. The most common A340-300 reached 63.7 m (209 ft) to accommodate an average of 290 passengers to could cover around 7,300 nm (13,500 km). The A340-500 was 67.9 m (223 ft) long to seat an average of 310 passengers over 9,000 nm (16,670 km). The longest model is the A340-600 that was stretched to 75.4 m (247 ft), then the longest airliner, to accommodate up to 475 passengers over 7,800 nm (14,450 km) at a MTOW of 365t (804,700 lb). The A340-600 is 12 m (39 ft 4.4 in) longer than a −300, more than 4 m (13 ft 1.5 in) longer than the Boeing 747-400 and 2.3 m (7 ft 6.6 in) longer than the A380.

The A340 production ceased in 2011.
