Concordes are back!
United will purchase 15 of Boom’s ‘Overture’ airliners, once Overture meets United’s demanding safety, operating and sustainability requirements, with an option for 35 more aircraft. Slated to carry passengers in 2029, the net-zero carbon aircraft will fly on 100% sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).
Flying at 2,000 km per hour, twice as fast as a Boeing 747, the planes would fly from London to New York in 3.5 hours, Washington DC to Paris in 4 hours, and from San Francisco to Tokyo in 6 hours.
There are only 88 seats on board, though, so tickets will probably be pricy...
