United Airlines will purchase up to 50 Supersonic Overture airliners and fly the fleet on 100% sustainable aviation fuels.
United becomes first U.S. airline to sign aircraft purchase agreement with Boom Supersonic.
United will purchase 15 of Boom’s ‘Overture’ airliners, once Overture meets United’s demanding safety, operating and sustainability requirements, with an option for 35 more aircraft. Slated to carry passengers in 2029, the net-zero carbon aircraft will fly on 100% sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).
Through innovation and collaboration, United and Boom are realizing a shared mission to connect the world safely and sustainably. At speeds twice as fast as today’s passenger jets, United’s new Overture fleet will open countless possibilities for new experiences and human connection.
