A handful of U. S. companies are trying to bring back supersonic passenger travel which died out with the Anglo-French Concorde's retirement in 2003.

The most recent upgrades of passenger airline designs made planes more fuel efficient, but, unlike previous design advances, they didn’t make planes faster. Boom will pioneer planes that are more environmentally sustainable — it’s promising to make its business carbon neutral and Overture will use sustainable jet fuel — and twice as fast.

Overture will essentially be just the business class and forward cabin of existing planes that airlines fly internationally now, but they’ll be able to fly the routes twice as frequently because of their speed and use half the onboard crew because of their size, Scholl said. That means the planes themselves should be "profit machines" for airlines even with affordable fares, he said, and that will be part of how supersonic flight helps remake the industry over the next decade.

each plane costs $200,000,000.Several international airlines are interested in buying planes and made some purchase commitments, with Japan Airlines having ordered 20 planes and being first in line to debut the planes on routes in Asia.

The company, which employs 140 people now, plans to break ground in 2022 on its initial factory producing Overture planes. Boom expects to select and announce where that factory will be next year.

The first passenger version of the supersonic Overture airliner is scheduled to roll off a factory production line in 2025.

Today's planned supersonic jets, while quieter and more fuel efficient than the Concorde, are under pressure from environmentalists and airports to meet noise levels and carbon emissions standards for conventional planes.
