A US airline has unveiled plans to bring back supersonic transatlantic flights by the end of the decade.

United Airlines has conditionally agreed to buy jets capable of flying at speeds of Mach 1.7 – twice as fast as modern airliners.

It could see flight times slashed in half – with a journey from London to Newark in New Jersey taking three and a half hours.
