Watch: Hyperloop Could Connect London Airports

The Branson-backed high-speed transport project is still in development, but Rob Lloyd envisages a future when it could join up Heathrow, Gatwick “in five minutes” according to the company’s CEO. Calculations suggest that Hyperloop One, which comprises a series of carriages or pods carried by electric propulsion in a low-pressure tube, could transport people and goods at speeds of up to 670mph (1,080kph). The aim of the company is to have a fully-operational hyperloop to transport cargo by 2021. Hyperloop One is already ahead of the curve, having become the first company in the world to test a full-scale Hyperloop back in May 2017 on its 500m Development Loop (DevLoop) in Las Vegas.
