Thai AirAsia is a Thailand based low-fare airline, a joint venture between Malaysian AirAsia and Thailand’s Asia Aviation. The airline started services in February 2004 and operates both domestic and international routes.
The Airbus A320 is a short to medium range, a narrow-bodied, twin-engine jet airliner. The first member of the A320 family that includes the A318, A319, A320, A321, and the ACJ business jet. The maiden flight occurred on February 22, 1987, and first entered service in April 1988 with Air France. Manufactured in two variants: the A320-100, only 21 built, and the A320-200 with increased fuel capacity and wingtip fences. In December 2010, Airbus launched the A320neo (new engine option) with more efficient engines, airframe improvements and winglets. The first flight took place on September 25, 2014, and entered service on January 25, 2016, with Lufthansa.
The A320 family pioneered digital fly-by-wire flight control systems, side-stick controls and full glass cockpit in a commercial aircraft. The airframe uses composite materials of aramid fibre, glass fibre and carbon fibre reinforced plastics along with aluminium alloys — the first subsonic aircraft to use composite primary structures. The cabin is broader than competitors, 3.95 metres (156 in) outside diameter, compared to 3.8 m (148 in) of the Boeing 737 or 757. Typical passengers seating is four abreast in first class and six in economy class, both with a single central aisle. It is powered by two CFM56-5-A1 or International Aero Engines (IAE) V2500 turbofans. The A320neo uses the P&W PW1100G or CFM International LEAP-1A, engines that offer lower maintenance costs and about 15% better fuel economy.
