The A319 is one of the more modest of Airbus' very effective single passageway carrier family right now in administration, and rivals Boeing's 737-300 and 737-700.

The A319 project was propelled at the Paris Airshow in June 1993 on the premise of only six requests set by ILFC late in 1992 and the anticipated better prospects of the business carrier market, which were positively figured it out. The main A319 aerial shuttle request originated from French transporter Air Inter (since united into Air France), whose request for six was affirmed in February 1994. From that point forward Swissair, Air Canada, Lufthansa, Northwest, United, US Airways and British Airways are among the significant clients that have requested more than 500 A319s (all additionally work or have on request A320s).

The A319 flew shockingly on August 25 1995 from Hamburg in Germany. European JAA affirmation and administration section, with Swissair, occurred in April 1996.

The A319 is a base change, abbreviated subsidiary of the very effective A320. The real contrast between the A320 and A319 is that the last is shorter by seven fuselage edges, while in very nearly all different regards the A319 and A320 are indistinguishable.

Like the A321, A330 and A340, the A319 gimmicks Airbus' regular two team glass cockpit with sidestick controllers initially presented on the A320. There are noteworthy group preparing expense profits and operational funds from this plan as the A319, A320 and A321 can all be flown by pilots with the same sort rating, implying that the same flightcrew pool can fly any of the three sorts. Further, the indistinguishable cockpit means lessened preparing times for teams changing over to the bigger A330 and A340. The A319 is said to have the longest run in this class of carrier.

Like the A321, A319 last gathering happens in Hamburg with Daimlerchrysler Aerospace Airbus. Last gathering of all different Airbus aerial transports, including the A320, happens at Toulouse.

The A319 structures the premise for the new child of the Airbus family, the A318 100 seater (portrayed independently), and the Airbus A319 Corporate Jetliner (additionally depicted independently).
