Amex Ventures’ Investment Will Support Boom’s Development of Sustainable Supersonic Airliner

Boom Supersonic, the aerospace company building the world’s fastest and most sustainable commercial airliner, today announced a strategic investment from American Express Ventures. The funds will support the continued development of Boom’s flagship product, the supersonic airliner Overture.

Overture is Boom’s 65- to 88-seat supersonic airliner, capable of running on 100% sustainable aviation fuel. The supersonic aircraft is slated to roll out in 2025 and begin commercial flights by 2029.
