Drone-based pizza delivery service launched in Iceland… won’t the pizza get cold?
(Natural News) Residents of Reykjavik, Iceland may be the first ones in the world to get their pizzas literally from the heavens.
Last Wednesday, August 23, 2017 saw the launch of the world’s first drone delivery service in Iceland’s capital. The drones, which are powered by Tel Aviv, Israel-based drone delivery company Flytrex, made it possible for grocery and restaurant food to reach their destination in just four minutes, rather than the 25 minutes it would have took if you traveled by car in Reykjavik.
“Rejkjavik’s unusual topography makes for circuitous routes and lots of traffic jams. We’re offering the ultimate solution for delivery,” said Flytrex chief executive officer (CEO) Yariv Bash in an interview with NYPost.com.
With the pilot program called “Sushi in the Skies of Iceland”, one can tell that the initiative was initially geared toward making food deliveries. Flytrex, however, plans to expand its drone delivery services to transporting other consumer products.
