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 A321neo (new engine option) is the largest member of the A320neo next generation narrow body aircraft family powered by fuel efficient engines offering up to 15 percent reduction in fuel consumption compared with previous A320 aircraft family. Airbus announced the A320neo program on December 1, 2010, with a target date for the first aircraft delivery in Spring 2016. The powerplant options include the Pratt & Whitney's PurePower PW1100G engine and the CFM International's LEAP-X engine. The A321neo also incorporates fuel-saving large wing tip devices called Sharklets. Besides saving 3,600 tons of CO2 annually per aircraft, the A321neo will deliver double-digit reduction in NOx emissions, reduced engine noise, lower operating costs and up to 500nm (950 km) more range or two tons more payload.
On March 8, 2011, Airbus and ILFC signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for 25 A321neo jetliners becoming thus the launch operator for the A321neo aircraft.
