Boom Supersonic plans to make one-way supersonic air travel from London to New York cost about $2,600.
They have developed prototypes of a 55-seater jet that will have a cruising speed of 1,451mph, 100mph faster than the Concorde. They hope to begin passenger flights by 2025.
Traveling at half the time will really require a separate system for aircraft boarding and clearing of customs. The pre-clearance systems for getting quickly through security checks will be more common and even separate airports, terminals and gates for supersonic and other high-end travel.
SpaceX has talked about going in under an hour anywhere on earth for a few thousand dollars by 2028
In her opinion
* BFR (and point-to-point Earth transport) will be deployed “within a decade, for sure.”
* Point to point travel on EArth will be a few thousand dollars per person (less than business fare on a regular plane).
