Airbus SE (AIR.FR) said Monday that it was launching a new project, called fello'fly, that aims to boost the environmental performance of commercial planes.

The European plane maker said the project's goal is to show the viability of two planes flying together for long-haul flights.

"Through fello'fly, a follower aircraft will retrieve the energy lost by the wake of a leader aircraft, by flying in the smooth updraft of air it creates," it said.

The flight tests will start next year with its A350 jet, Airbus said.
