We present results of observations of the Aql X-1 field performed in March-April 2003 with the INTEGRAL observatory. This TOO (Target Of Opportunity) INTEGRAL observations was initiated upon receiving an indication from the ASM/RXTE that the source started an outburst. Thirteen X-ray sources were detected by the INTEGRAL imagers, JEM-X and IBIS, during these observations. We present a preliminary spectral and timing analysis for several bright sources in the field, Aql X-1, X1901+03, 4U1907+097, XTE J1908+094 and X1908+075. We also detected two X-ray bursts from Aql X-1 near the end of the general outburst episode.
