Airbus announced that it had flown about 240 hours in more than 90 departures to certify the Pratt-driven variant since the first flight on April 25. The plane used the same A319neo test aircraft, the MSN6464, which was previously used for the Leap-1A engine version.

Two ACJ319neo corporate versions have been delivered since this variant was certified in July.

 
Deliveries to airlines will begin in 2020, according to Airbus. The aircraft maker has firm orders of 36 A319neos.
