Hi,
Does anyone know the shortest route an A340 does (or has done?) and which airline?
I know OA does Athens to London, but are there any more?

AC sometimes operates them from YYZ-YUL and vice versa. That's like a 45 minute trip.

I YYZ-YUL might take the cake with AC, thats only 316 miles, you can drive it in 5-6 hours, but takes about 45 minues by air. They commonly use 767/A333/A343 aircraft on this route, as often times they need that much capacity on the route.

Gulf Air uses its 340's on Bahrain-Kuwait, and Bahrain Abu Dhabi hops... they probably use them on other routes, but these are the ones I'm 100% certain of.

Turkish Airlines for training  Smile from Istanbul Yesilkoy to Istanbul Sabiha Gokcen i think it's a 12 minute flight, depending on certain factors


The only time there is too much fuel onboard, is when you're on fire!

IB operates MAD-BCN at busy hours with A340-300, and also when aircraft shortages occur.

Cheers

While training staff to use their A345's, TG operated Bangkok to Phuket and Bangkok to Chiang Mai/Rai. I believe that could be the shortest.
