The last A300 to leave the Airbus fi nal assembly line in Toulouse, France, an A300 Freighter, was delivered to FedEx last month. Over the life of the programme a total of 821 A300/A310s have been ordered and to date there are more than 630 A300s and A310s in service with about 80 operators.

Airbus’ long-term fl eet support programme will continue to enable their operation until the very last aircraft is retired from service, with half of the current fl eet expected still to be in service beyond 2025. With more than 120 A300s and A310s aircraft currently in service, FedEx is a long-standing operator and the largest customer for these aircraft types.

The Airbus A300, launched in May 1969, was the very first wide-body, twin-engine aircraft ever brought to the market.
