Design process of Airbus A319 started in early 1990s. Airbus A319 is in commercial operation since 1995. About 20% of all fuselage parts is made of composite materials, mostly special plastic with carbon fiber reinforcement. This was a technological innovation of that time. Wingspan of Airbus A319 is wider that the total length of the aircraft body. This is another technical feature of Airbus A319.
Swissair became the first commercial operator of this jet. More than 1,400 Airbus A319 are operated worldwide nowadays.
Two versions of Airbus A319 are currently in production: previous version of airliner called Airbus A319ceo (current engine option) and new version that is called Airbus A319neo (new engine option). Latest generation of engines are installed on A319neo, that deliver reduction in fuel usage and lower noise level. It is possible to choose between CFM International LEAP-1A and the Pratt & Whitney PW1100G when you purchase new Airbus A319neo.
A319neo differs from A319ceo also in re-designed aerodynamic body elements including winglets and new passenger cabin with more space for baggage. According to Airbus technical adjustments make it possible to decrease fuel consumption for 15% and lower operating expenses for 8%.
Basic price of Airbus A319ceo is 90 million US dollars.
