The future is closer than we think!
The future is closer than we think!
Sick of the never ending airplane journey whenever you travel out of Dubai? Well, how does the concept of being in London in just 3 hours sound to you?

We know what you’re thinking…Dubai – London can’t possibly take 3 hours, right? Although its not a reality just yet, it looks like it might happen sooner than expected. The prototype of the Boom Supersonic XB-1; a jet that travels up to 2,334 km/h, first came out back in 2017, and now it looks like a Dhs367m deal has been placed to take the project to the next step.

The Supersonic can seat 55 people and is currently in the final phase of development and before you think its too good to be true, its prototype will set off sometime this year. So far its expected that the finished jets will be ready for use in 2020, so you better start saving now because tickets are going to cost the same as a business class ticket. The exact destinations/routes haven’t been announced yet, but what we do know is that standard flight times are expected to be divided by half.
