The potential future market demand for a high-speed aircraft along with an estimate of the related costs and ticket prices have been assessed. To address the future demand for a high-speed aircraft, the eligible origin and destination city-pairs and the potential network for such a vehicle have first been identified. Then, the number of premium passengers flying this network, over the next 20 years, is forecasted. Based upon technical characteristics of the potential future high-speed aircraft, it is finally possible to determine the number of vehicles that would be necessary to accommodate this expected future demand.
