As a shortened-fuselage version of Airbus’ A320 cornerstone single-aisle jetliner, the A319 continues to prove its versatility – enabling carriers around the world to benefit from the aircraft’s range options and seat layout flexibility.
In addition to the standard 124-seat configuration with a range of up to 3,740 nautical miles, Airbus offers an option with a seating capacity of up to 156 passengers – a version that is being ordered by an increasing number of low-cost airlines.
The A319 has the same optimised cabin cross-section as the other A320 Family members – which is the widest single-aisle fuselage on the market and sets the standards for passenger cabin adaptability in this segment. This allows for top-of-the-range comfort with generous seat width, or an extra-wide aisle for fast turnarounds.
A new cabin interior introduced by Airbus for the A320 Family ensures the A319 meets the needs of airline travellers today and tomorrow, bringing passenger comfort to a new level for its category. It provides a fresh new look, significant increase in overhead stowage, a noticeable reduction in noise, and options for ambience lighting – all with lower weight.
Facilitating the A319’s onboard operational effectiveness is its digital cabin management system, which controls cabin-related tasks ranging from interior lighting, pre-recorded messages and emergency evacuation signalling to potable water management. It also can perform the checkout of all service units from a single point.
Below the main deck, an unmatched cargo capability results from the A320 Family’s wider fuselage – enhanced by its containerised cargo loading system that is unique in its aircraft category and is compatible with the airline industry’s freight system for widebody jetliners.
