The Airbus A318 is the smallest member of the Airbus A320 family of short- to medium-range, narrow-body, commercial passenger jet airliners manufactured by Airbus. The A318 carries up to 132 passengers and has a maximum range of 5700 km (3100 nmi or 3600 mi). Final assembly of the aircraft takes place in Toulouse, France. The maiden flight of the Airbus A318 took place at Toulouse on 15 January 2002, and the first customer delivery was on 22 July 2003 to Frontier Airlines. Relative to other Airbus A320 family variants, it has sold in only small numbers with total orders for 80 aircraft placed, with the order book currently being empty. It also has an excellent safety record; as of 2018, out of the 118 accidents involving the Airbus A320 family, none have involved the A318. As of January 2019, Air France was the largest operator of the Airbus A318.
