Will commercial supersonic air travel ever return to our skies? Start-up Boom Supersonic thinks so. Mark Broadbent profiles its ambitions to slash global flight times onboard the fastest-ever airliner
Can you imagine flying to anywhere in the world within four hours? Well, that may soon be possible due to Boom Supersonic’s incredible aspirations to revive supersonic air travel with its 55-seat, Mach 2 airliner – Overture. If the development of Overture keeps on track, double-digit travel time will become a distant memory before the end of the decade. There will be more bang for your buck, too, with the promise that those four-hour flights could cost just $100.
