Flight evaluations with the first A319neo (New Engine Option) aircraft began on 31 March 2017, with the aircraft taking off from Hamburg-Finkenwerder Airport in Germany – one of four final assembly line locations worldwide for Airbus’ best-selling single-aisle jetliner family – and landing at the company’s Toulouse, France headquarters location. This aircraft is powered by CFM International LEAP-1A engines

Powered by CFM International LEAP-1A engines, the no. 1 A319neo performed its maiden evaluation on 31 March 2017 – taking off from Airbus’ industrial site at Hamburg-Finkenwerder Airport in Germany and landing at the company’s Toulouse, France headquarters facility, where it will complete the flight test programme for this shortest-fuselage member of the A320 New Engine Option Family

The third member of Airbus’ best-selling A320neo Family – the A319neo – has gone airborne, performing its maiden flight today. After taking off from Hamburg-Finkenwerder Airport in Germany (which is one of four final assembly line sites worldwide for the single-aisle jetliner family), the aircraft touched down five hours later at Airbus’ Toulouse, France headquarters location. 
This shortest-fuselage member of the A320neo product line is equipped with CFM International LEAP-1A engines – one of the two powerplants available on the NEO jetliners. 
Once in airline service, the A319neo will provide the same remarkable fuel efficiency as the longer-fuselage A320neo and A321neo versions, enabling airlines to choose between three aircraft sizes accommodating from 100 to 240 seats – depending on the specific passenger cabin layout. The choice allows carriers to match capacity with demand, covering the entire single-aisle jetliner segment from low- and high-density domestic operations to longer-range routes. 
The A319neo’s flight campaign will focus primarily on aircraft handling qualities, autopilot, performance and systems – building on the required engine tests that already have been performed with the A320neo and A321neo versions.
