Description: The Airbus A310 is a twin-engine, wide-body, two-aisle, compact, efficient, short- to medium-range airliner capable of carrying from 220 in a two-class configuration over a range of 9,600 kilometers. It can be powered by either General Electric CF6-80C2 or Pratt & Whitney PW4000 engines. This aircraft is suitable for both commercial and military applications. Its wide body cabin provides an outstanding comfort to passengers in both all-economy and business classes. EADS is marketing the A310 as one out of two solutions for the Multi Role Tanker Transport (MRTT) aircraft.

The first wide-body A310 aircraft entered service in 1983. Since 1994, a dedicated variant through conversion of existing A310 airliners along with the A300F are being offered to airlines as freighters. To date, EADS has delivered a total of 108 converted freighter aircraft to 19 customers worldwide: 48 A310-200s, 34 A300B4s, 14 A310-300s and 12 A300-600s.

Emirates SkyCargo and EADS signed a contract for the conversion of three ex-Aeroflot A310-300 passenger airplanes into A310 Freighters on December 11, 2004. The freighters ordered by Emirates SkyCargo will be outfitted with a side-by-side loading capability and will carry up to 39 tons of cargo. The first aircraft will be delivered in July 2005 and the remaining two in January 2006.

In March 2006 Airbus announced that the company was ceasing A300 and A310 production by 2007 following growing demand from operators for the newest Airbus models such as A321, A330, A340 and A350. The last A300/A310 airplane on order, an A300-600, was expected to be handed over in July 2007.
