The Airbus A320, also known as the Airbus A320ceo (current engine option) is a narrowbody short/medium-haul airliner developed by Airbus in the 1980's. It is Airbus' best-selling product to date, by a wide margin. Despite the fact that the design itself is over 20 years old, it still remains a best-selling aircraft with major airlines such as jetBlue Airways, Kingfisher Airlines and AirAsia still committing to orders.

The A320 is the basis, and the family namesake, of the other narrowbody aircraft developed by Airbus, including the A318, A319 and A321.

This series of aircraft is being replaced with the A320neo.
