Sharklets flight testing expands to include the A319

Airbus has widened the flight test programme for its Sharklets-equipped A320 Family with today’s maiden flight of the initial A319 incorporating these fuel-saving, performance-enhancing wingtip devices. The A319 joins A320 and A321 aircraft that have been validating the Sharklets’ efficiency, with their evaluations already demonstrating fuel consumption savings better than the original target.
