Slovenia's flag carrier, Adria Airways, has taken delivery of its first new Airbus A319. The aircraft was handed over from the Airbus delivery centre in Hamburg, Germany. Operated under a lease agreement with AerCap, the new A319 will be deployed on European scheduled services from Ljubljana.

The new A319 will be powered by IAE V2500 engines from International Aero Engines and is configured in a two class cabin layout for 135 passengers.

The airline will receive one more A319, leased through AerCap, to join its existing fleet. In 1983, the airline was one of the launch customers for the A320 model. A few years later in 1989, the first International Aero Engines V2500s powered Airbus A320 was delivered to Adria Airways making them the first airline to operate this engine type on an A320. In 1990, an Adria Airways A320 flew non-stop from the Seychelles in the Indian Ocean to Athens in Greece setting a new record for the longest flight ever made by the A320 at that time.

"We are very happy to welcome this new eco-efficient aircraft to our fleet and we look forward to receiving the upcoming A319's to continue our fleet renewal" said Tadej Tufek, M.Sc. President of the Management Board & CEO, of Adria Airways.
