With this plane you will be in New York in 4 hours

American Airlines has reportedly ordered 20 Overture supersonic jets, which allow vacationers to fly from London to New York in about 4 hours.

The planes can also cover the London-Miami route in just five hours, while the current flight time is around nine and a half hours. Flight time would be cut in half with Boom Supersonic’s new model.

American Airlines is only the first major buyer and has ordered 20 machines of the new type. The Overture is designed to carry passengers at twice the speed of the current fastest commercial airliner.

Boom revealed its final design for the overture last month, with production expected to begin in 2025. If all goes according to plan, the first passengers could board the plane in 2029.

The design is strongly reminiscent of the Concorde, which could take passengers from New York to London in just two hours and 52 minutes. However, the agreement stipulates that Boom must meet American’s industry standard operational, performance, safety and other standard conditions before the Overtures ship and supersonic flight become a reality again.

Overture is designed to carry 65 to 80 passengers.
