“Jetstar” operates 52 aircrafts Airbus A320-200. Airbus A320 is passenger medium-haul airplane constructed by Airbus S.A.S.

Airbus A320 with 150 passenger seats appeared to be the most sold airplane of Airbus Industries ever. It is the first airplane in the world on which fly-by-wire control system was installed. Control of surfaces was made not from the control wheel directly but by reading from the handles installed on the sides of the cabin and further transmission of the pulses to hydraulic drives.

As compared to the other wide-bodied airplanes that have been constructed by the company during that time it was the first narrow-bodied airplane.

For initial deliveries two modification have been created: A320-100 and A320-200 with passenger capacity 130 and 150 passengers correspondingly. Later passenger capacity of both airplanes became 150.

First flight was made on February 22nd 1987.

On the base of this model elongated A321 and shortened A318 and A319 have been created.

Modification A320neo differs with new, more fuel-efficient engines that allow to increase flying range by 500 miles, reduced noise level and emissions.
