These small, electric jets will also cut travel times in half. Fewer TSA regulations are enforced on smaller planes and hybrid-electric jets are able to travel faster than traditional planes. The first aircrafts introduced into the market will be able to fit 10-15 passengers and travel up to 700 miles. By 2030, the startup aims to have planes flying over 1,000 miles.
Zumun Aero is currently in the building phase and expects to have lift off in the early 2020s. With this technology, "many cities around us that could be connected directly by air that don’t have such service today," noted Haran.
