As the smallest jetliner in Airbus’ commercial aircraft product line, the A220-100, was built from the ground up to serve the 100-135 seat market with unbeatable efficiency and comfort. With broad seats, plenty of overhead storage space and large windows, this is a single-aisle aircraft that feels like a widebody jet.
As the larger member of the A220 Family, the A220-300 is perfectly tailored for the 120-160 seat market. It represents the fusion of performance and technology, allowing airlines to connect distant points on continents and for route sectors that were previously unprofitable or impossible to perform.
The A319 – a shortened-fuselage member of Airbus’ A320 Family – continues to prove its versatility by providing a range of seating options, from the 110-seat configuration to a capacity of up to 160. The A319 has the same optimised cabin cross-section as its fellow A320 Family members (A318, A320 and A321) – which is the widest single-aisle fuselage on the market. This allows for top-of-the-range comfort with generous seat width, or an extra-wide aisle for fast turnarounds.
A new digital audio cockpit system will bring significant improvements to pilots and aircraft operations compared to current analogue audio. The Digital Radio and Audio Integrating Management System (DRAIMS) received EASA certification* in March 2020 for the A320 Family.
