History of the A340 At the beginning of the 80s, AIRBUS began to give shape to the projects of wide-body aircraft ("wide body") and long two and four-engine radio. In June 1987, the A340 and A330 programs were launched just before the "Paris Air Show". The A330 program was destined to compete with the Boeing B767, which was the most modern wide-bodied aircraft of the moment with two engines, while the A340 was destined to compete with the B747, being both of 4 engines .
The Airlines, due to the obligatory fulfillment of the ETOPS (Extended-range Twin-engine OPerational PerformanceS) regulations for twin engines, divided their preferences between both types of aircraft, according to the operational costs incurred.
The A340 obtained the European certification (JAA) on December 22, 1992, and on May 27, 1993 that of the FAA. The first Airlines that used the A340 were Lufthansa and Air France that put the A340 in service in March 1993. Since then, and until 2011, AIRBUS has delivered a total of 375 units.
