25 августа 1995г.: взлетел A319 - новейший представитель семейства реактивных лайнеров Airbus.
Первый A319 стал 546-м построенным самолетом в семействе A319/A320/A321. Первые два A319 остались в "Airbus", именно они использовались для 650-часовой программы летных испытаний. Самолет был сертифицирован с двигателями CFM56-5A/-5B и IAE V2500-A5, а чуть позже - с IAE V2524.
The A319 is the third member of the Airbus 'standard-body' family, and like its sisters will feature the widest fuselage cross-section of current single aisle aircraft.
Airberlin operates seven A319s, including D-ABFO (msn 3728), pictured at Hamburg.
Swiss-registered Airbus A319 HB-IOX (msn 3604) is one of eight in service with airberlin.
Компания "Air Canada" стала одной из первых, получивших A319. Первый самолет, A319-114 с двигателями CFM56-5A5, был передан ей 12 декабря 1996 года. Он имел двухклассную компоновку - 16 мест представительского класса (Executive Class) и 106 мест эконом-класса.
Air Canada is the North American launch customer for the A319, having ordered up to 35 aircraft to replace its large DC-9-30 fleet from 1996, and supplement the 34 A320s currently operated.

British Airways showed off their first Airbus A319 D-AVYK, c/n 1082, the prospective G-EUPA, at Birmingham 22-23/9/99. The airline has thirty-nine of the type on order
British Airways is one of only a handful of European flag carriers to transition to a full commercial basis, although some of the changes made in recent years have not always gone down well with the airline’s employees. Recent cost-cutting measures led to the airline announcing better than expected results for the fourth quarter on May 20, 2002, reducing its pre-tax loss to £200 million for the full year to March 31, 2002, well ahead of market expectations. The company's 'Future Size and Shape' review, announced in February 2002, will be realised over the next two years and is aimed at driving costs down to protect the airline over the long term. Airbus A319-131 G-EUPA is one of 33 currently in service out of a total of 39 on order.

Following the merger of SN Brussels Airlines and Virgin Express last year, the amalgamated company announced on November 7, 2006 that the carrier will in future operate under the Brussels Airlines brand. Operations under the new name will commence on March 25, 2007, whilst until then flights will continue to be operated under the separate brand names of SN Brussels Airlines and Virgin Express. A new corporate colour scheme is also being adopted for the airline's aircraft, as seen here on SNBA's newly repainted A319-112 OO-SSG. Initial fleet for the merged airlines will be three Airbus A330-300s (with a fourth due to be added), three A319-100s, ten Boeing 737-300s/400s and 32 Avro RJ85s/RJ100s/BAe 146-200s.

An A319 of China Southern Airlines, one of 50 Airbuses of various models it operates: it has another 80 on order. Airbus has won significant orders from the growing market in China and aims to build on this by opening a joint venture production line in Tianjin building A320s.
New Chinese carrier East Star Airline took delivery of this new production A319-112, B-6229 (c/n 2762, ex D-AVWJ), on May 12, 2006 at Toulouse on lease from GE Commercial Aviation Service (GECAS). The aircraft entered revenue service on May 22 operating a flight from Wuhan to Shenren. East Star is acquiring ten A320 family aircraft direct from Airbus and a further ten on lease from GECAS.
Easyjet was one of Europe's earliest proponents of the no-frills model, and has grown rapidly. It originally favoured the Boeing 737, but subsequently placed a large order with Airbus for A319s, as illustrated here.
Last November, easyJet placed a £1 billion order with Airbus for 52 A319s, which the airline claims produces 27% lower emissions per passenger kilometre than similar, but older, models operated by competitors.
easyJet is one of the largest low-cost airlines in the world and is continuing an aggressive growth strategy. The carrier is expanding its fleet by adding Airbus A319s which have been specially modified with an extra over wing emergency exit to allow these aircraft to carry 156 passengers, instead of the previously allowed maximum of 149.
British Airways was historically one of easyJet's main rivals. The low-cost carrier frequently returned fire at BA in an attempt to carve out its place in the market
EasyJet has recently set up a Vienna-based subsidiary unit called easyJet Europe to protect its EU traffic rights after Brexit.
Low-cost carrier easyJet has introduced the first major change to its colours since the 1990s, with Airbus A319-111 G-EZDE (msn 3426) first to receive the carrier's revised livery. The new colours will feature on all new deliveries from April 2015. In-service jets will receive the colours in scheduled re-paints. Twenty-nine aircraft will have the scheme by the end of the year and half of the fleet by 2017.
Airbus A319-111 G-EZIO (msn 2512, ex D-AVWP) of easyJet was rolled out at Southend on November 18, 2012 after being painted with the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) titles on its rear fuselage. The budget airline partnered with UNICEF during the summer and winter seasons of 2012 to collect donations from passengers on behalf of the organisation.
EasyJet started flights from Southend in 2012 and has steadily grown its network from the Essex airport.
Launched in 1993, the A319 has to date proved to be the second most popular variant of the A320 family, with 1,574 orders. The type has recently found favour with low-cost airlines such as Air Berlin and easyJet. The UK carrier expects to have no less than 229 A319s in its fleet by 2012. This aircraft wears special markings, denoting that this is the 100th A319 to be delivered to easyJet.
easyJet now has a fleet totalling more than 300 examples, which is around 50 more than its former rival BA

In 1997 the Airbus Corporate Jet version of the A319 was launched. This variant can be fitted with up to eight additional fuel tanks, which extends the range to 6.000nm carrying eight passengers. It has proved popular as a private jet, for business passenger-only airline routes and as a VIP transport for governments. This example is one of three operated by the Italian Air Force.
Airbus Corporate Jetliner (ACJ). Решив вступить в конкуренцию с "Boeing" и ее бизнес-джетом BBJ (Boeing Business Jet), в 1996 году "Airbus" объявила о запуске программы A319CJ (Corporate Jet). Самолет был создан к 1999 году и рассчитан на перевозку 8-50 пассажиров на дальность около 11 670 км, что соответствует беспосадочному перелету из Франкфурта в Лос-Анджелес или из Лос-Анджелеса в Токио. Высокая стандартизация с базовым A319 позволяет авиакомпаниям в сжатые сроки переоборудовать бизнес-джет в обычный авиалайнер - в итоге в линейке A319 появился A319LR с большой дальностью полета. 13 июня 1999 года ACJ совершил беспосадочный перелет из Тулузы в Буэнос-Айрес, преодолев за 14 ч 50 мин расстояние в 12140 км, а 16 августа 1999 года самолет получил сертификат типа от европейского агентства JAA (Объединенные авиационные администрации, сегодня их функции выполняет Европейское агентство по авиационной безопасности, EASA). Доведение базового A319 до ACJ осуществляется за счет дополнительной установки до шести топливных баков, что позволяет увеличить дальность полета до 11 667 км. Первый A319CJ был поставлен Кувейту (1999 год), после чего компания "Airbus" разработала модели бизнес-джетов A320 Prestige и A318 Elite.
Lufthansa Technik at Hamburg has completed the six-month interior outfitting and customisation of the first Airbus A319-112 Corporate Jetliner for the Italian Air Force, MM62173 (c/n 1002, ex D-AJWF), seen here outside the Hamburg facility.
