The A320 is known to be the first commercial airplane to employ the fly-by-wire technology: a navigation system that uses an electronic interface (wires) instead of manual flight controls.
The average range of an A320 is 3,300 nmi [6,100 km] with sharklets – aerodynamic devices located on the tip of the wings.
According to the American TV network CNN, the entire fleet has accumulated around 150 million flight hours in over 85 million flights so far.
