In June 2012, Air Canada and Airbus came together via the Aviation Environmental Roadmap team to complete the first Perfect Flight in North America, a commercial flight from Toronto to Mexico City with an Airbus A319 that demonstrated CO2 emissions reductions of more than 40% by combining best practices of aircraft technology, optimized operations, air traffic management, and the use of sustainable alternative fuels.
