EC-MFB - Airbus A340-300
With a service range of 7,400 nautical miles, Airbus’ A340-300 is tailored to meet the needs of the 250-290-seat long-range market – offering direct point-to-point services and increased flight frequencies at lower costs. As flagships with smaller airlines, A340-300s provide vital long-range links to and from less populous cities; while serving as a cost-effective 250-290-seat long-range complement for operators of A320 Family aircraft.
History of the reg
Produced in Toulous, our A340-300 was originally registered in April 1998 by Singapore Airlines (Singapore) under the registration 9V-SJM. This was transferred to the Boeing Aircraft Holding Company (USA) in June 2003 under the reg D-ASIJ.
Shortly after, in June 2003, the aircraft was transferred to Gulf Air (Bahrain) under the reg, A4O-LH, later changing to A9C-LH in November 2007. The aircraft was intended to be leased by Hellenic Imperial Airways (Greece) under the reg SX-TIG but this was not taken up.
For it's final role, the airline Plus Ultra (Spain) leased the aircraft in March 2015 under the reg EC-MFB, retiring it in August 2020.
