The A319 is a minimum change version of the A320, with virtually the same fuel capacity as the A320-200. It is powered by the same types of engine as the A320. JAA certification and service entry, with Swissair, took place in April 1996. To satisfy evacuation regulations, additional over-wing exits were included.
It seats 124 passengers, with a seat pitch that can be adapted in units of one inch. Galleys, lavatories and stowages can be located in different numbers, groupings and locations. In-flight entertainment can be incorporated in the seats or screens mounted on partitions below the overhead stowages. This makes for an almost infinite variety of cabin interiors.
