Boom supersonic Overture aircraft will be American Airlines New Supersonic Aircraft, as the airline announced an agreement to purchase the aircraft and placed a deposit on 20 overtures.
Yesterday (August. 16, 2022), Boom Supersonic released the news that American Airlines placed a non-refundable deposit to purchase 20 of the famous supersonic new aircraft named Overture, with an option for an additional 40.
Boom Supersonic is aiming for Overture supersonic aircraft to be the world's fastest airliner. The aircraft will have a capacity of carrying 65 - 80 passengers; at the speed of Mach 1.7 over water and just under Mach 1 over land, with a range of 4,250 nautical miles (7871 Km). You can read all about its incredible specifications in my article here.
"Looking to the future, supersonic travel will be an important part of our ability to deliver for our customers,". "We are excited about how Boom will shape the future of travel both for our company and our customers". Said Derek Kerr, American’s Chief Financial Officer.
This came after United Airlines announced the same deal in June of last year that it would buy 15 Overture Supersonic Aircraft with an option of an additional 35 in the future.
American Airlines New Supersonic Aircraft; Boom Supersnoci "Overture", will sell for 200$ million dollars. It is slated to roll out in 2025, fly in 2026 and is expected to carry passengers by 2029.
Although it's relatively low passenger capacity, the new aircraft will allow American Airlines to fly routes from the U.S to Europe in just about 3 hours and a half. This would undoubtedly revolutionise the Aviation industry and enhance the travel experience.
The whole world saw the Concorde flying and is looking forward to seeing this aircraft come into life again; with all of the new safety measures and developments in Aviation, we are hoping to see Overture in the air launching a new era of air travel.
