The Airbus Corporate Jetliner, or A319cj, is a long extend corporate plane improvement of the A319 aerial shuttle which contends specifically with the Boeing Business Jet and devoted long run corporate streams, for example, the Bombardier Global Express and Gulfstream V.

Airbus propelled the A319cj at the 1997 Paris Airshow and the first A319cj took off of Dasa's Hamburg A319/A321 gathering lobby in October 1998. The airframe was then because of be fitted with paunch assistant fuel tanks and flight test instrumentation before making a first flight in May 1999. Affirmation is gotten ready for mid 1999 with the first client conveyance due in November that year.

Not at all like the Boeing Business Jet, which joins together the 737-700's airframe with the 737-800's fortified wing and undercarriage, the A319cj is intended to be a base change advancement of the A319. This implies, as indicated by Airbus, that the A319cj could be effectively changed over to a carrier, hence expanding the flying machine's potential resale esteem.

The primary A319cj is controlled by IAE V2500s yet Cfm56s are likewise accessible, while the A319's containerised load hold implies that the CJ's assistant fuel tanks might be effectively stacked and emptied, giving administrators adaptability to reconfigure the flying machine for differing payload/range necessities. Like whatever is left of the A320 single path family (in addition to the A330 and A340), the A319cj shares Airbus' normal progressed six screen EFIS flightdeck with sidestick controllers, in addition to fly-by-wire flight controls.

At mid 2002 Airbus had chosen five lodge suppliers for the flying machine - among which Lufthansa Technik in Germany, Jet Aviation of Switzerland, and Air France Industries. Airbus will supply green A319cj airframes to the suppliers for inside fitment. Insides weigh around 3.8 tons (8500lb) and cost $us4-10m. Equipping will ordinarily take four to six months.

The principal A319cj request, published in December 1997, was put by a Kuwaiti single person. Among the later clients are the Italian, French, and Venezuelan Air Forces, Taiwan's Eva Air, and Qatar Airways.
