seating for 124 passengers, with a range of up to 3700 nautical miles,
powered by CFM56-5 or IAE V2500 engines. In the Airbus Corporate Jetliner
version spacious luxury is added to airliner levels of reliability, with
a range of up to 6300 nautical miles.The A320 Family cabin is simply the
best for any kind of travel in this market. The A319 was the first member
of the A320 Family to bring a new standard of comfort and technology to
markets previously only served by the smallest jet aircraft. That is why
the A319 continues to outsell its direct competitor, and the the reason
why this standard-setting aircraft has been used to develop the Airbus
Corporate Jetliner, the only business jet that can be easily converted
to commercial passenger service.
airlines want families of aircraft with consistent comfort and performance
standards across the whole family. This makes it possible to switch aircraft
between routes and markets, according to changing travel trends and seasonal,
even daily, traffic variations. Meeting this need ideally is the single-aisle
A320 Family, offering from 100 to 220 seats' capacity with the same crews,
parts, cabin and performance standards.
A319, A320 and A321 have been developed to have range of 3000 nautical
miles in the single-aisle market, range to offer true transcontinental
non-stop capability, whether routes are primarily business travel or leisure
and holiday travel. The highest-weight A319 has the exceptional non-stop
range capability of 3700nm/6850km.
