supersoniSupersonic jetliner travel, which ended more than a decade ago with the Concorde, is set for a boost after Japan Airlines (JAL) agreed to invest $10 million in Colorado startup Boom Technology. The strategic partnership deal will give JAL a 1% stake in the Denver-based company, reports Japan Times.

JAL has actually already been working with Boom for over a year, according to Boom founder and CEO Blake Scholl, but this more clearly formalizes the relationship. Having airline stakeholders closely involved in how the development of its aircraft and service plans will work is a huge boon for Boom, which is a very small company.
