Airbus Europe began as a consortium of European nations in the 1970s, the initial Airbus A300 jet was to be a transcontinental jet airliner capable of large passenger capacities and accompanying cargo. After considerable political positioning, the UK both left the arrangement then returned. Rolls-Royce was targeted for engines, but decided to remain out of the project, so the group used both General Electric and Pratt & Whitney for this portion of the design.

The resulting airliner jet was massive and capable of the desired specs, but shortly after the initial launch, several nations determined that a slightly smaller version was needed.

The Airbus A310-300 jet, though a later modification, featured a shorter fuselage and modified wing structures to allow for smaller runways, fewer passengers, and reduced fuel consumption. Initial orders went to Lufthansa with a 25 unit commitment. This became the ideal mass transit aircraft for both cross-European and intercontinental flights.
