UA Plans to Buy Supersonic Planes

Dublin, IRELAND


Dublin, June 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ResearchAndMarkets.compublished a new article on the air travel industry "UA Plans to Buy Supersonic Planes"

United Airlines is planning to turn the friendly skies into the ultrafast skies with the addition of supersonic jets. The carrier announced Thursday it's buying 15 planes from Boom Supersonic with the option to purchase 35 more at some point.

Boom's first commercial supersonic jet, the Overture, has not been built or certified yet. It is targeting the start of passenger service in 2029 with a plane that could fly at Mach 1.7 and cut some flight times in half. That means a flight from New York to London that typically lasts seven hours would only take 3 hours.

The last time passengers had the option of supersonic transport was when the French Concorde ended its flights in 2003.
