The A330/A340 Family concept is unique: one basic airframe is available in six different configurations, powered by two or four engines. The twin-engine A330 is optimised for highest revenue generation and the lowest operating costs from regional segments to extended range routes, while the four-engine A340 provides versatility on the most demanding long-range and ultra-long-range flights. With its highly versatile configuration, the A330-200F can meet the specific requirements of such differentiated markets as the express low-density business and the general cargo needs for higher loads. The aircraft can accommodate up to 23 side-by-side pallets on the main deck, and is capable of other arrangements such as single-row loading of 16 pallets, and a mix of 9 AMA containers with four pallets. The spacious lower-deck cargo hold accepts up to 26 LD3 containers, plus 19.7 sq. m. of bulk cargo.
