The Airbus A310 is a medium/long-haul widebody airliner that was assembled in Toulouse, France until 2007, when production was ceased along with the Airbus A300. Technically a shortened version of the Airbus A300, the A310 was offered as a smaller capacity, longer range option. Nowadays, the Airbus A310 operates on a variety of missions, including higher capacity short/medium-haul as well as as long haul on routes that have a thin market that cannot be supported by larger types.

The Airbus A310 consists of two variants.
