Airbus has revealed that the A319neo with PW1100G engines has received its EASA Type Certification.
With this news, Airbus confirmed this completes the programme of Type Certifications across the full A320neo Family, comprising: A320neo, A321neo and A319neo. Each with Pratt &Whitney PW1100G and CFM LEAP-1A engine options.
After initially flying with CFM engines, the A319neo flight test aircraft (MSN6464) first flew with P&W engines in April 2019. Thus far, Airbus said the aircraft has flown around 240 flight hours/90 flights with the P&W engines.
The A319neo Type Certificate comes after the certification of the A319neo with CFM engines on 14 December 2018, as well as the certification of the corporate version ACJ319neo on 9 July 2019.
Airbus explained that there are currently 83 A319neo orders and commitments, with further sales ongoing.
After the delivery of two ACJ319neo aircraft in 2019, Airbus said the deliveries of the airline version are set to start in 2020.
