Zephyr Flights Will Be One Third Current Flight Times.
The Zephyr’s Mach 2.6 cruise speed makes it the fastest commercial jetliner in the world, flying three times faster than today’s aircraft. This speed translates into flight times that are one-third the time of current flights. These shorter flight times are highly prized by passengers and greatly increase the productivity of the airline’s aircraft and crews. The variable geometry wings enable the Zephyr to takeoff and land at slower speeds than competitive aircraft, allowing the Zephyr to operate from shorter runways.
