On June 11, American Airlines Flight 63 will depart Paris for Miami, Fla.,  aiming to prove that trans-Atlantic flights can be operated greener.

Through the Atlantic Interoperability Initiative to Reduce Emissions (AIRE), American will be the first U.S. airline to test next-generation technology and procedures that will significantly reduce carbon emissions and save fuel on trans-Atlantic routes.

The testing will be conducted during a normally scheduled flight so American can obtain real-time benefits.

Greener flights would have environmental and likely cost implications for meeting and event planners organizing programmes to exotic locales and conference venues.
