Airbus 320-200.

The Airbus 320-200 is a single aisle, twin-engine jet manufactured by Airbus Industrie, the European consortium. It is part of the Airbus 320 family, the world’s best selling aircraft line.

The A320 is probably best known as the first aircraft to introduce a fly-by-wire system – where controls from the pilot are transmitted to the flying moving parts by electronic signals rather than mechanical means.

Customer benefits include:

  • moving map video screens
  • widest single-aisle fuselage on the market
  • all leather seats
