携程战略投资美国超音速飞机制造商,为中国14亿人口带来超音速飞行

 

Ctrip has announced on Thursday an investment in US based supersonic airplane developer Supersonic Boom that will help build its commercial aircraft.

The airplane developer is currently building a supersonic airliner capable of carrying 55 passengers at Mach 2.2, which is equivalent to the speed of 1,451mph (2,335 km/h).

Boom boasts that this could cut travel time in half, meaning that a flight from Shanghai to Los Angeles would shrink to just over six hours, instead of the current 12-hour flight time.

The Boom airliner is expected enter service in the mid-2020s.

 

携程今日宣布与美国超音速飞机制造商Boom Supersonic达成战略投资,助力Boom加速2.2马赫超音速客机的研发。

Boom Supersonic目前正在研发的55座超音速飞机飞行时速为2.2马赫(约合2333千米/时),比普通客机快出一倍多,机票价格却与同航线的商务舱持平。客机预计于2020年中期进行首飞,届时从上海飞往洛杉矶将从现在的12小时缩短到6小时。
