Where Does the Airbus A300 Fly? May 2014 Network Update

Nearly forty years ago the Airbus adventure started with the A300B, an innovative response to airlines’ requirements. In 1972 the world’s first widebody twin-aisle commercial aircraft performed its maiden flight, the first steps towards changing the face of modern aviation.  The A300B and its followers, the A300-600 and the A310, had a rather slow start, but as their reputation for economy and reliability spread among airlines, they went on to become market leaders in short to medium haul passenger operations, and the best selling freight aircraft ever.

Every month The HUB provides an update on the current schedules of three latest aircraft programmes, highlighting the routes the types are being deployed upon. We regularly look at the operations of the Airbus A380, Boeing 787 Dreamliner and Sukhoi SSJ100 Superjet. We also feature one guest type each month - last month this was the Boeing 737-200 and this month is the Airbus A300.  We also reveal the network size of each operator and the top destinations served by the aircraft type.

The data is all supplied by OAG Aviation using its OAG Schedules Analyser tool.
