International Business Trips May Soon Take Half the Time
Decades ago, the French-British turbojet-powered supersonic passenger airliner better known as the Concorde seem poised to take over the world. With its ultra-fast speeds, the jet could reach destinations at speeds that were mind-blowing. However, due to its exorbitant operating costs and lack of demand, the Concorde project had a short life in commercial use and today it is viewed as an ambitious innovation that was perhaps too far ahead of its time.
Fast forward to 2019 and it appears the spirit of the Concorde is ready to fly again. Earlier this year, aircraft manufacturer Aerion joined forces with Boeing to bring its supersonic jet closer to certification. Called the A52, the biofuel-powered business jet will be able to cruise the skies at Mach 1.4 speed, or a whopping 1,000 miles per hour. At such incredible speeds, flying to destinations such as Beijing, Dubai, or London may take half the time.
The AS2 is aimed largely for business travelers, able to accommodate up to twelve passengers. If its development and rollout go according to Aerion’s plans, the aircraft is expected to start flying business travelers beginning in 2023.
