About the Airbus A320
The Airbus A320 is a narrow body twin-engine aircraft manufactured by Airbus. The jet is part of the Airbus A320 family, which also consists of the A318, A319, A321 and ACJ Business Jet. The Airbus A320 was the first member of the A320 family and first flown in 1987.
The A320 is used on short-haul and medium-haul flights and can carry up to a maximum of 194 passengers. The A320 was the sole member of the Airbus A320 family up until 1994 when the A321 was released.
In 2010, Airbus revealed plans to replace all Airbus A320ceo (current engine option) with updated Airbus A320neo (new engine option). The Airbus A320neo was released in 2016, with Lufthansa being the first airline to fly the new jet. The final Airbus A320ceo jets were delivered in 2017 and, while some are still in circulation, Airbus stopped manufacturing the A320ceos shortly before. In total, there were nearly 5,000 Airbus A320ceo jets delivered between 1994–2017.
The Airbus A320ceo has two variants, the Airbus A320-100 and Airbus A320-200. However, the Airbus A320-200 is the definitive version as only 21 of the A320-100 were ever manufactured.
