Can anybody assist me with details of the Wing tip and blast clearances for AirbusA300 and A321. Thanks in advance if you can.

Well... the A300 wing span is 147.1 ft and the A321 is 111.9ft (per Aviation Week), as for the blast clearance... not sure. Hope this helps. ADIOS

not sure of wingtip clearances, as long as they don't hit it's clearance enough! LOL

As for blast, i know if you're in a vehicle on a service road you have to let 200ft pass if the plane's a widebody before proceeding, for a narrow body it's 100ft

By wingtip clearance, do mean the height of the wingtips above the ground? I don't know the answer but I wanted to be clear about the question.

Thanks for the info so far. Sorry if I didn't explain myself properly. What I actually need is, when you are designing an airport, specifically the apron area, how much clearance space around, under and over must you allow for each Airbus A300 or A320. I've been asked to find out by an architect that I do research for and as I know little about aircraft except that I love to travel in them, I thought this forum would be a good place to start. The Airbus site itself is pretty hopeless for technical information of the kind I require.
