“British Airways” operates 67 aircrafts Airbus A320-200. The first flight was made on February 22nd 1987.

150-seat Airbus A320 appeared to be the most sold aircraft of Airbus Industries for its entire history. It is the first airplane in the world on which fly-by-wire system (FBW) was installed. Plane management was made not from the control wheel directly but by reading from handles installed on each side of the cabin and then pulse transmission to hydraulic drives.

As compared to all other constructed at that time wide-bodied airplanes, it was the first narrow-body airplane.

For first deliveries two modification have been created: A320-100 and A 320-200 with passenger capacity 130 and 150 passengers correspondingly. Later, passenger capacity of both aircrafts became 150.
