The order is part of the airlines fleet rollover to eco-efficient Airbus A319s, which is planned to be completed by the end of 2013.

The carrier will fly the A319s to their 30 destinations in Germany, Europe, around the Mediterranean region and the Middle East.

We are delighted to be taking delivery of our first brand-new Airbus A319 here in Hamburg. This delivery starts a new era in our fleet planning. The A319 is one of the most popular short-to medium-haul aircraft, and it will enable us to operate a large number of different routes in a particularly economic and flexible way both for charter flights and scheduled flights. The fuel-efficient A319 makes an important contribution to environmental protection, and reflects Germania green in the truest sense of the word, said Axel Trampnau, Chief Executive Officer of Germania.

The airline has chosen a single class cabin layout for 150 passengers, equipped with a state-of-the-art entertainment system, containing video screens and in-seat audio channels.

Germanias A319s will be powered by CFM engines.
