American Airlines will purchase 20 Overture aircraft from Boom Supersonic and has paid a non-refundable deposit on the initial 20 aircraft.

The order also includes options for 40 additional Overture aircraft.

“Looking to the future, supersonic travel will be an important part of our ability to deliver for our customers,” said Derek Kerr, American’s Chief Financial Officer. “We are excited about how Boom will shape the future of travel both for our company and our

“We are proud to share our vision of a more connected and sustainable world with American Airlines,” said Blake Scholl, Founder, and CEO of Boom. “We believe Overture can help American deepen its competitive advantage on network, loyalty and overall airline
preference through the paradigm-changing benefits of cutting travel times in half.”

Under the terms of the agreement, Boom must meet industry-standard operating, performance, and safety requirements as well as American’s other customary conditions before delivery of any Overtures.

In July, Boom revealed the final production design of Overture, which is slated to roll out in 2025 and carry its first passengers by 2029.

Overture is expected to carry passengers at twice the speed of today’s fastest commercial aircraft and will introduce an important new speed advantage to American’s fleet. It will be able to carry 65 to 80 passengers at Mach 1.7 over water — or twice the speed of today’s fastest commercial aircraft — with a range of 4,250 nautical miles.
