Some have been waiting for a Concorde successor ever since the airliner was retired on October 24, 2003, but that day may soon be here. Boom Supersonic CEO Blake Scholl states that his company will offer $100 flights to various destinations worldwide aboard their Overture aircraft in just 4-hours. It can seat between 65-88 people, depending on the configuration, and will focus primarily on the 500 transoceanic routes that can take full advantage of its Mach-2.2 speeds.

What does this speed translate to? How about A journey from New York to London would in a mere 3 hours and 15 minutes. Now the $100 flights most likely won’t be offered right away, as it will take 2-3 generations of aircraft to get the costs down, but considering a journey aboard the Concorde would have cost you $20,000 with inflation, it may be well worth the wait.

Lots of people think like one or two steps ahead. I find it helpful to think much further out and say, ‘where do we want to be in a decade or two? And what’s possible at that time scale?’ Then you work backwards and say, ‘how do we get there?’ As things get back into growth mode. There’s an opportunity to build a new-generation fleet that’s got supersonic baked into it. That actually makes it easier to adopt,” said Scholl.
