    The China Southern Airlines, Chongqing International Invest airline joint venture is leasing the A319 from International Lease Finance Corp. It’s one of three Airbus narrowbodies Chongqing is leasing from ILFC, Airbus says, with all three to be handed over by June.

    The aircraft has eight seats in first class, and 114 in economy.

    The aircraft is to be used on tourist routes from the airline hub in China’s Southwest region.
