Wingtip devices

The Sharklet™ wingtip devices for Airbus’ A320 Family – of which the A319 is a member – are part of a long-term enhancement programme to ensure Airbus’ single-aisle aircraft product line remains highly competitive, efficient and airport-friendly for years to come.  

Sharklets provide aerodynamic improvements that result in multiple benefits for operators, including a 15 per cent lower fuel burn, reduced emissions, increased range and payload, better take-off performance and rate-of-climb, higher optimum altitude and reduced engine maintenance costs.

Versatility, comfort and commonality

The Airbus A319 with IAE engines and Sharklets, featuring the latest Airbus livery.

As a shortened-fuselage version of Airbus’ A320 cornerstone single-aisle jetliner, the A319 continues to prove its versatility by providing a range of seating options, from 124-seat configuration to a capacity of up to 156, with all options offering the highest level of passenger comfort. 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 cabins.  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, setting a new standard for passenger comfort on single-aisle jetliners.  The calm and quiet cabin provides a fresh new look, more space in the overhead compartments, a noticeable reduction in noise, and options for relaxing ambience lighting – all while being lighter. 

Like all members of the aircraft A320 Family that introduced Airbus’ revolutionary fly-by-wire control system, the A318 benefits from the cockpit commonality, which helps reduce the cost of training, maintenance and aircraft operation. Not only are pilots qualified to fly any member of the A320 Family with the Common Type Rating, but training to switch between other Airbus aircraft is even easier with the Cross-Crew-Qualification (CCQ).
