The A300-600 jetliner’s widebody fuselage cross-section, high versatility and low operating costs make it an ideal regional freighter. In the A300-600F variant, this aircraft carries significant tonnage and volume on the main deck, as well as in the generous underfloor holds – accommodating the full range of existing cargo containers and pallets.

With its range of more than 4,000 nautical miles, the A300-600 has the capability to fly all major regional routes of the world’s principal economic regions. Since it is a derivative of the A300-600 passenger aircraft, this freighter brings the best service standards for time-sensitive shipments.

Loading access

Total cargo volume available on the A300-600F is 115.7 square metres. The aircraft is fitted with a 141 X 101-inch primary cargo door on the forward fuselage that facilitates the loading of industry-standard containers and pallets on the main deck, while large doors for the lower cargo holds facilitate the handling of freight in these below-deck zones.

On the main deck, the A300-600F’s capacity is 15 96 X 96 X125-inch pallets in single-row loading, or the side-by-side loading of up to 21 pallets sized at 88 X 96 X 125-inches. The underfloor cargo holds accept both LD3 containers (a total of 23) and pallets.

Setting the standards

The A300-600F is part of the A300/A310 product line and incorporates Airbus technologies that have made these aircraft the standard-setters for performance, reliability and profitability. This includes fuel-saving aerodynamics such as wingtip devices; electrical signalling for slats, flaps and spoilers; the use of six identical electronic flight instruments on the flight deck; and automatic windshear protection.

During a long and successful production run, Airbus produced a total of 816 A300/A310s. Some 300 of these aircraft are expected to remain in service beyond 2025.

Alright, I gotta say, this request deserves a series bump.


This aircraft is the main cargo aircraft operated at my home airport, Richmond. FedEx and UPS are the only operators that use this aircraft into RIC, but it’s always a nice sight to see on FlightRadar24, and when I go spotting to see this beautiful aircraft.


Clearing a vote for this.
