In June 2012, Airbus and Air Canada collaborated to conduct a “perfect flight”. This flight would bring together all the means and methods of reducing the environmental impact of a flight, finding ways to reduce CO2 emissions wherever possible. This meant using a modern, fuel efficient aircraft (in this case an A319), alongside the use of sustainable aviation fuel and a range of operational measures. This project demonstrated that bundling together all these efficiency measures could result in a 40% reduction in carbon emissions.
