2013 Airbus A320-214 specs Airbus launched its single-aisle product line with the A320, which continues to set industry standards for comfort and operating economy on short- to medium-haul routes. Typically seating 150 passengers in a two-class cabin – or up to 180 in a high-density layout for low-cost and charter flights – the A320 is in widespread service around the globe on services that vary from short commuter sectors in Europe, Asia and elsewhere to trans-continental flights across the United States. The A320’s advanced technology includes the extensive use of weight-saving composites, an optimized wing that is 20 per cent is more efficient than previous designs, a centralized fault display for easier troubleshooting and lower maintenance costs, along with Airbus’ fly-by-wire flight controls. Advantages of the fly-by-wire controls – which were pioneered on the A320 – are many. They provide total flight envelope and airframe structural protection for improved safety and reduced pilot workload, along improved flight smoothness and stability, and fewer mechanical parts.
