Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

The '''Airbus A320 Family''' is a series of narrow-body commercial passenger jets manufactured by [[Airbus|Airbus Industries]]. Designed for short to medium hauls, the aircraft pioneer fly-by-wire technology and regularly compete with the [[Boeing 737|Boeing 737 series]]. The series includes the Airbus A318, the A319, the A320, and the A321. The [[Airbus A320E|"A320 Enhanced" program]] aims to further improve the A320 family with longer range and better fuel economy.
