Description: The Airbus A320 is a single-aisle, twin-engine, narrow-body, short- to medium-range aircraft family with a seating capacity for 100-220 passengers. The aircraft family includes the Airbus A318, A319, A320 and A321 featuring high degree of commonality of all models and low operating costs. Wider seats and aisle are meant to provide higher comfort to A320 passengers.
The fuselage body layout of the A320 family of aircraft allows a greater cargo capacity with A319, A320 and A321 fitted out with a containerized automatic cargo loading system to ease cargo handling operations. The cargo handling system of A320 aircraft is fully compatible with the worldwide standard widebody system installed in larger aircraft. Moreover, the A320 family offers low fuel burn and noise emissions characteristics.
The A320 family of aircraft was launched in 1984 and the first A320 jetliner entered service in 1988. It can be powered by either CFM International CFM56-5A (A319 and A320), -5B (A318, A319, A320 and A321) or IAE V2500 engines. In addition, The Pratt & Whitney PW6000 turbofan will power the Airbus A318 jetliner from 2005.
The Airbus A321LR, formerly the Airbus A321neo with 97 tons maximum take off weight (MTOW), is the longest range single-aisle airliner and was officially launched on January 13, 2015, with an order from Air Lease Corporation (ALC) for 30 airplanes. The new airliner will feature the Airbus Cabin-Flex (ACF), which offers passengers the highest standards of comfort while providing great flexibility and profit optimization to airlines. The entry into revenue service is planned for 2019. The airplane is intended to carry 206 passengers over routes of 4,000 nautical miles (nm) in a two-class layout. An additional fuel tank in the forward under floor hold of the aircraft, as well as minor improvements on the wing and fuselage, will make possible the extra range. The A321LR is a further evolution of the A321neo.
