Bringing the era back, Boom is a new startup that aims to build up an affordable supersonic passenger plane. Having a high-speed travel solution will let many businesses to grow and perform well. Travel is one of the most time-consuming processes.  Reaching from part of the globe to another is a day’s journey. And it is also costly.

But travelling in the supersonic plane will reduce the time much lower. Boom is in the process to build a passenger plane that can reach the 2.2x speed of sound. It will take just 3.5hours to reach from New York to London, compared to more than 6 hours journey today. Many long distance flights connect major cities around the globe. Long flight time is not only costly but also delays business operation. Technology still today helps to reduce the impact on business, but at some point reaching personally to the location matters.
