Aircraft Type & Version - Airbus

Thu Aug 19, 1999 12:21 am

I was wondering -

While collecting photos of aircraft, I try to incorporate the aircraft type and version (B747-400 / A340-300) in the file name. While checking out Airbus Industries web page, I never came across any version breakdown for the A320 family of aircraft. So, I just file them under A319, A320, or A321.

While going over the daily entries of new photographs on this site, you can’t help but notice that some people say it’s a A319-100, or a A320-200. Is this version an individual airline designation of some type?

Thanks in advance for any info.

Hey Concorde SST,

The A320-100 was the first production version of the 320 and only a few were built. I understand that Air France got some and I'm not sure who else has them. This version was replaced a few months after by the A320-200 which has the winglets and a greater range than the A320-100.

Hope this helps!

You can check out the FAQ section about how to distinguish different types of Airbus jets.

In the series, the -100 is the basic model, with the -200 being a heavier, longer ranged version. Note, there is no A319-200.

FYI - the only other airline to receive the A320-100 was British Caledonian, these 10 aircraft were inherited by British Airways when BA swallowed up B Cal. (boo-hoo)

Yes, British Airways does operate the A320-100, but Air France also received quite a few as did Air Inter. Air Inter was absorbed by Air France; as a consequence they operate many A320-100s.
