The Airbus A319 is a member of the Airbus A320 family of short- to medium-range, narrow-body, commercial passenger twin-engine jet airliners manufactured by Airbus.

Typical 2-class seating is 124 passengers, but it can carry up to 156 passengers. Maximum range is 3,300 nm. Final assembly of the aircraft takes place in Hamburg, Germany.

The A319 is a shortened-fuselage variant of the Airbus A320 and entered service in April 1996 with Swissair, two years after the stretched Airbus A321 and eight years after the original A320. The A319 is close in size to the somewhat smaller Airbus A318.

As of May of 2017, a total of 1,457 Airbus A319 aircraft have been delivered.

Spotters Guide to the Airbus A319

Shown below is a side-by-side comparison of the Airbus A319 and the somewhat shorter Airbus A318. While the A319 is longer than the A318, it features a shorter vertical stabilizer than does the A318.

Both the A318 and A319 have fore and aft cabin doors, plus one emergency exit over the wing

Note that due to the high density seating on the A319s for EasyJet, Airbus had to add an extra overwing exit. That makes the window and seat count the only reliable difference between the EasyJet A319s and their A320s.
