Fly from London to New York in 3.5 hours? New supersonic jet coming in 2029

Commercial supersonic flights could be back as soon as 2029 after Concorde stopped flying back in 2003

Published by

Sad you never got to fly on Concorde? Well fear not because a new commercial supersonic plane is on its way thanks to manufacture Boom.

And some big airlines are backing the company with American Airlines having just put in an order for 20 of the Boom Overtures taking the amount of orders to around 120 when the plane rolls out later this decade.

The Overture will fly up to Mach 1.7 over water - about 1,300mph - which is double the speed of a regular commerical airplane.

At those speeds, you'll be able to get from London to New York in around 3.5 hours and to Miami in around 5 hours.

Prices are expected to be similar to what you'd pay for an equivilant business class ticket.

Would you be up for a journey on one of these?
