- reduce travel times significantly
- aircraft concepts are announced by multiple companies
Long distance travelers could soon reduce their travel times significantly as new high-speed aircraft concepts are announced by multiple companies. One of the most likely to succeed is a hypersonic airliner idea recently revealed by Boeing, which claims it could speed travelers across the Pacific Ocean in just three hours.
