Details of launching aircraft services that shorten the travel time for passengers, as high-speed aircraft are currently being developed as an alternative to the French Concorde at supersonic speed, to enter service soon.

In this context, an informed source confirmed that there is great interest from airlines in providing hypersonic aircraft, to shorten travel time, and that there are many high-speed aircraft under development.

And the source stated that there are some airlines that are developing planes into planes that are much faster than the speed of sound, almost five times, which makes the flight time between London and New York about 90 minutes only, while traditional commercial planes take about 7 hours.

It is worth noting that the French high-speed plane "Concorde", which retired twenty years ago, was high-speed at the time, as it was crossing the Atlantic Ocean, which separates London and New York in about 3 hours.

It is expected that airlines will adjust the speed of aircraft to almost five times faster than the speed of sound, making the journey between London and New York about 90 minutes only, while conventional commercial aircraft take about 7 hours.

For its part, the emerging company "Hermes", based in the US city of Atlanta, is working on the production of the high-speed plane, as the company began testing a new type of engine, which is believed to increase the speed of the plane to Mach 5 (more than 4828 kilometers per hour).

The company also indicated that the new plane will be much smaller than the current planes and even the "Concorde", which had a capacity of about 100 people, according to what was published by the Emirates newspaper today.
