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 A321XLR is a long-range single aisle airliner derived from the A321neo jetliner and launched in June 2019 with an estimated entry into revenue service by 2023. The A321XLR has a maximum range of 4,700 nautical miles (8,700 kilometers) carrying between 180 to 220 passengers. The aircraft features a permanent Rear Centre Tank (RCT) for more fuel volume, a modified landing gear for an increased maximum take-off weight (MTOW) of 101 metric tons, and an optimized wing trailing-edge flap configuration to preserve the same take-off performance and engine thrust requirements as the A321neo.
