United Airlines is the first U.S. airline to sign an agreement of purchase with Boom Supersonic, an aircraft manufacturer creating airliners expected to be net-zero carbon and connect 500+ cities in nearly half the time.

On June 4, the announcement was made by United that it will purchase 15 of Boom’s ‘Overture’ airliners once Overture meets United’s demanding safety, operating, and sustainability requirements. In addition, the deal included an option for 35 more aircraft if United chooses that they would like them.
