Transcontinental flights in 3 hours

Globalisation makes long-distance travel a daily occurrence. This means that vehicle manufacturers are focused on increasing speed. In particular, civil aviation breaks all records: in 2050, a New York - Tokyo flight aboard a supersonic aircraft will take three hours. This airliner is completely devoid of windows and has disproportionately small wings shifted to the rear - yet, it covers the skies at extreme speeds.

Shantal Morales I think it is a very good option, so that there is more tourism in that country and the flights are faster

González Juárez Maria Esther They are probably very polluting and noisy. They will also be expensive, although it is a great step for humanity, it does not seem very necessary to me, perhaps in the future that will change.

Zolen There is a reason why air travel has not sped up in the last 20 or more years. It's because of noise pollution and fuel consumption. It would be totally possible to make a supersonic aircraft at this time, it's just not financially viable, and because city or town would want such a loud plane flying over them, it would have to fly very convoluted paths that would make the speeds it can travel largely pointless.
