Supersonic aircraft could eliminate jet lag and get you anywhere in four hours.

The Overture, dubbed the “Son of Concorde,” will travel at 1,300mph, more than twice the speed of today’s fastest commercial jets.

It will transport passengers around the world in record time, allowing them to avoid the extreme tiredness known as jet lag.

Virgin Atlantic, based in the United Kingdom, has placed an order for up to ten aircraft.

‘I own the world’s first tattoo parlor on a cruise ship, and we do about 35 tattoos a day.’

“If a flight from San Francisco to Tokyo is cut from 12 hours to six, you can leave a whole day later,” said Blake Scholl, CEO of manufacturer Boom Supersonic.

“If you leave Sunday morning, you’ll arrive Sunday afternoon, which is Monday morning Japan time, do a day of meetings, and return home 24 hours later with no jet lag.”

Last week, American Airlines agreed to buy up to 20 Overture jets and put another 40 on hold.

Boom Supersonic claims to have received $6 billion in pre-orders.

Concorde was the last supersonic airliner, with service ending in late 2003.

The Overture is expected to carry 65 to 80 passengers, with seating arranged business class-style, eliminating the need for middle rows.

A round-trip ticket to New York will cost around £1,750.
