Ever since Airbus launched its single-aisle family with the A320, it has set the standard as the most comfortable short-to-medium-haul aircraft – which is just one of the reasons why it has become the most successful aircraft of all time. With the widest single-aisle cabin, passengers can enjoy more personal space, wider seats and generous overhead compartments to store their luggage. With a versatile cabin that can be configured for a variety of seating options, the A320 usually seats 150 passengers and has a maximum capacity of up to 180 travellers. The A320 also has an extremely quiet cabin with an array of lighting options meaning it’s easy to relax and enjoy the flight.
Like all Family members, the A320 shares the same fly-by-wire digital flight controls and cabin management systems and this consistency makes life easier for pilots and cabin crew and allows them to focus on looking after passengers. Cockpit commonality also reduces training and maintenance costs.
