Airbus A319

Airbus A319 prototype F-WWDB

The A319 is a minimum change, shortened derivative of the highly successful A320. The major difference between the A320 and A319 is that the latter is shorter by seven fuselage frames, while in almost all other respects the A319 and A320 are identical. The A319, A318, A320 and A321 can all be flown by pilots with the same type rating.

Airbus launched the A319CJ at the 1997 Paris Airshow (Le Bourget) and the first A319CJ rolled out of DASA’s Hamburg A319/A321 assembly hall in October 1998. The A319’s containerized cargo hold means that the CJ’s auxiliary fuel tanks can be easily loaded and unloaded, giving operators flexibility to reconfigure the aircraft for varying payload/range requirements.
