The Sud-Aviation SE.210 Caravelle is a twin-engined short-to-medium-range narrowbody airliner with a capacity of maximum 140 passengers produced by the French manufacturer Sud-Aviation, developed by its predecessor SNCASE (Sud-Est). Most variants had a passenger capacity of 80.
The Caravelle construction used several fuselage features from the de Havilland D.H.106 Comet including the nose area and the layout of the cockpit. The last variants had a stretched fuselage (Caravelle 12 with +6,22 meter / 20ft 4.9in compared to the early variants). The main operators were Air France with 46 Caravelle, Alitalia (21), SAS (21), United Airlines (20), Sterling (20), Iberia (19), Air Inter (14) and Finnair with 12 Caravelle.
