The Airbus A320 is a short to medium range commercial passenger aircraft manufactured by Airbus.
The A320 has given rise to a family of aircraft which share a common design but are a little smaller (the A319), a lot smaller (the A318), or a little larger (the A321).
While Airbus was hoping to market the A318 as a regional jet alternative, laws in both the U.S. and Europe have kept it in the same class as larger aircraft for calculating landing fees and the like, so regional operators have avoided it.

 Airbus - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The name "Airbus" was taken from a non-proprietary term used by the airline industry in the 1960s to refer to a commercial aircraft of a certain size and range, for this term was acceptable to the French linguistically.
In January 1999 Airbus established a separate company, Airbus Military S.A.S., to undertake development and production of a turboprop powered military transport aircraft (the Airbus Military A400M.) The A400M is being developed by several NATO members, Belgium, France, Germany, Luxembourg, Spain, Turkey, and the UK, as an alternative to the C-130 Hercules.
Airbus would ideally like the A350 programme to be launched with the help of state loans covering a third of the development costs although it has stated it will launch without these loans if required.

 Airbus - media - A320 Family
Whilst preserving the unique benefits of Airbus commonality, the A318 is pioneering the introduction of a number of enhanced aircraft systems throughout the A320 Family, which improve the overall reliability and reduce maintenance and initial provisioning costs.
All A320 Family members share the same type rating, therefore pilots qualified on one can fly any of the others without additional training, and the aircraft can all be maintained by the same team of mechanics.
Thanks to Airbus' unique family concept and the exceptional degree of operational commonality among all Airbus fly-by-wire jets, transition from the single-aisles to larger long-range aircraft is also fast and simple, requiring only minimal additional training.

 Aircraft-Info.net - Airbus A320 Information
The A320 is perhaps best known as the first airliner to introduce a fly-by-wire flight control system - where control inputs from the pilot are transmitted to the flying surfaces by electronic signals rather than mechanical means.
Apart from a small weight saving, the advantage of Airbus' fly-by-wire is that as it is computer controlled, an inbuilt flight envelope protection makes it virtually impossible to exceed certain flight parameters such as G limits and the aircraft's maximum and minimum operating speeds and angle of attack limits.
Mid 2000 A320 family production was at a monthly rate of 22, to be increased to 30 units a month by the end of 2002.

Now there’s an acceptance of the A320 as a low-cost workhorse, whereas prior to that the 737 was the plane of choice,” Miller said.
Airbus spokeswoman Barbara Kracht said airlines chose the A320 on the merits of the plane.
But while Airbus may be having success with narrow-body jets, it has expressed concern that it is losing ground in the wide-body, long-range market for jets like the 777 and A340, which generate higher profits.
