Charter Air on Airbus 320-200 – History and Highlights

When you are ready to charter your private jet airliner flight on the Airbus 320-200, Charter Flight Group is ready to handle all your arrangements. With thirty-plus years in the private jet charter industry, Charter Flight Group has both the experience and service-capabilities to ensure you a successful journey.

The Airbus 320-200 is the second series in the amazingly successful international jet airliner manufacturer Airbus Europe. As a consortium of European nations, this company has had a colorful history in both developing and building heavy jet airliners and the development of the Airbus 320-200 proved no different. After the Joint European Transport (JET) program was launched in 1977, it immediately became muddled in politics, which slowed both development and manufacture.

However, the slowed progress in developing the Airbus 320-200 proved to be a blessing for the company, for by the 1980s, new technologies allowed this jet to provide truly revolutionary design features that enhance safety, functionality, and carbon-emissions reductions. By adding the first ever fly-by-wire system in a commercial aircraft along with a computerized flight control system, the Airbus 320-200 was able to provide the kind of features only previously permitted in military fighter aircraft. This provides for greater maneuverability and hence safety.
