Airbus created the A340-300, its most popular variant, to compete with Boeing and McDonnell Douglas, offering non-stop service to destinations previously requiring fuel stops. The Airbus A340-300 entered service in 1993, with a total of nearly 350 built. Many A340 series airliners are still in service offering long haul flights around the world; an A340-500 operated by Singapore Airlines completed an 8,200 mile non-stop flight from Newark, NJ, USA to Singapore to set a new world record for the longest scheduled non-stop commercial flight.

The A340-300E is an extended range variant, offering upgraded engines to increase max takeoff weight to 275 tons (606,000 lb) and fully-loaded range to between 7,200 to 7,400 nautical miles.

The A340-300 is an ideal airliner for a transoceanic charter flights, with a maximum speed of 543 miles per hour, 41,000 foot service ceiling, and a fully-loaded range of  6,700 nautical miles (12,400 km).
