Dubai to New York flight time cut

International investor relations between the US and the UAE could soon be improved following recent announcements at the Paris Air Show.Emirates 24-7 has reported that an aircraft manufacturer has announced a new carrier capable of flying from Dubai to New York City in just two hours and 20 minutes.SonicStar, a new aircraft from manufacturer Hyper Mach, is the second supersonic plane to be launched at the industry event.However, unlike the Zero Emission Hyper Sonic Transport offering from EAD, the SonicStar is expected to be operational by 2021.EAD have claimed that their biofuel effort, which will reach speeds of Mach 4, will be flying by 2050, 29 years after Hyper Mach's Mach 3.6 design.Richard Lugg, chief executive officer of Hyper Mach, told the news provider: "It also promises reduced emissions and low noise. New technology means it will not create the 'sonic boom' its predecessor was known for."This is being done with an eye to the future, but it has its feet firmly rooted in solid scientific research."
