Even if companies are able to develop a commercially viable supersonic passenger aircraft, I feel it'll probably be a medium term solution only (say the next 20 - 30 years). The future is teleportation 😀

I am afraid not. You cannot teleport complex cells and reassemble them identical to the original. E = m C^2 is another complication. An 80 kg person dematerialized will represent a huge release of energy. How will the ego be dematerialized reassembled?
