ChinAfrica - - News Roundup -

China will de­velop a su­per­sonic speed Hyper­flight trans­port net­work with a de­signed speed of up to 4,000 km per hour, China Aero­space Science and In­dus­try Corp. (CASIC) re­cently an­nounced in Wuhan, cen­tral China’s Hubei Prov­ince. Ac­cord­ing to sources with CASIC, Hyper­flight speeds will be 10 times that of tra­di­tional high-speed trains and five times that of the pas­sen­ger air­planes.

It is said the com­pany would com­plete the Hyper­flight pro­gram in three steps. The first step will be build­ing a re­gional in­ter-city net­work with speeds of 1,000 km per hour. The sec­ond step is build­ing a na­tional net­work link­ing ma­jor city clus­ters with speeds of 2,000 km per hour, and the third step will be an in­ter­na­tional net­work with speeds of 4,000 km per hour to link coun­tries along the Belt and Road routes.
