Airline

An airliner is a type of aircraft for transporting passengers and air cargo. Such aircraft are most often operated by airlines. Although the definition of an airliner can vary from country to country, an airliner is typically defined as an airplane intended for carrying multiple passengers or cargo in commercial service. The largest of them are wide-body jets which are also called twin-aisle because they generally have two separate aisles running from the front to the back of the passenger cabin. These are usually used for long-haul flights between airline hubs and major cities. A smaller, more common class of airliners is the narrow-body or single-aisle.

Airbus A320 Family

Aircraft ICAO : A318, A319, A320, A321

The A320 is one aircraft in four sizes (A318, A319, A320 and A321), representing the most successful and versatile jetliner family ever. Seating from 100 to 240 passengers and flying throughout the world, with the widest single-aisle cabin, an A320 takes off or lands every 1.6 seconds. From the heat of the desert to icy Antarctic runways, or from short runway urban environments to remote high-altitude airports, the A320 can take passengers anywhere. As the longest-range single-aisle aircraft, airlines and passengers alike have benefitted from the A320’s exceptional efficiency and quality since its introduction

Aircraft ICAO : A330

The A330neo is a true example of a highly-innovative aircraft that delivers superior quality and efficiency. As a member of Airbus’ family of wide-body jetliners, the A330neo benefits from continuous investment of over 150 million euro every year – integrating the latest developments from the A350 and A380 Families to maintain its position as the best in its class, well ahead of its competition. The A330neo is powered by high-bypass ratio, new generation engines and designed with an advanced high-span wing vastly improving the aerodynamics.

Airbus A340 Family

Aircraft ICAO : A345

Combining performance, comfort and range for highly efficient ultra-long-haul operations, Airbus’ A340-500 is popular with passengers and airlines alike. The four-engine, twin-aisle wide-body jetliner’s range of up to 9,000 nautical miles allows the A340-500 to operate some of the world’s longest non-stop routes, while its optimised 222-inch fuselage cross-section gives airlines the cabin versatility to match market requirements. This extended flight endurance allows the A340-500 to operate many of the world’s longest commercial air routes, including direct Singapore-New York flights with durations of more than 18 hours.

Airbus A350 XWB

Aircraft ICAO : A350

The Airbus A350 XWB is a family of long-range, wide-body airliners developed by Airbus. The first A350 design proposed by Airbus in 2004, in response to the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, would have been a development of the A330 with composite wings and new engines. As market support was inadequate, in 2006, Airbus switched to a clean-sheet "XWB" (eXtra Wide Body) design, powered by Rolls-Royce Trent XWB turbofan engines. On 15 January 2015, the initial A350-900 entered service with its launch operator Qatar Airways, followed by the A350-1000 on 24 February 2018 with the same airline. The A350 XWB launch customer, Qatar Airways, is also currently the largest operator with 53 airplanes in its fleet

Airbus A380

Aircraft ICAO: A388

The Airbus A380 is a wide-body aircraft manufactured by Airbus. It is the world's largest passenger airliner. Airbus studies started in 1988 and the project was announced in 1990 to challenge the dominance of the Boeing 747 in the long haul market. The then-designated A3XX project was presented in 1994; Airbus launched the €9.5 billion ($10.7 billion) A380 programme on 19 December 2000. The first prototype was unveiled in Toulouse on 18 January 2005, with its first flight on 27 April 2005. Difficulties in electrical wiring caused a two-year delay and the development cost ballooned to €18 billion. It obtained its type certificate from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) on 12 December 2006.
