Airbus is working on a jet that can cover the distance from London to New York in just 60 minutes compared to the usual 7 hour journey. The US Patent and Trademark Office has approved Airbus’s patent of a new hypersonic aircraft. The Airbus’s Superjet will fly at a extraordinary speed which calculates to be twice the speed of Concorde which moved at 1350 miles per hour.

Airbus said that the market envisaged for the potential new aircraft is principally that of business travel and VIP passengers.
