SAA’s Airbus A319-100, the BabyBus of our fleet, is a shorter version of the A320, the cornerstone of Airbus’ single aisle fleet. The Airbus A319 retains the benefits of overhead stowage, different options in ambient lighting and noise reduction, while its shortened fuselage allows us to fly the aircraft across our short-haul route network.
Reduced flight noise comes thanks to the Airbus A319’s use of RNP-AR (Required Navigation Precision – Authorisation Required) procedures combined with RTA (Required Time of Arrival) operations that eliminates the need for flight holds, and enables a continuous descent approach which helps reduces fuel use.
