Drones are buzzing over Iceland delivering beer and burgers

The citizens of Reykjavik, Iceland, has formally observed the best use for commercial drones: beer delivery.

Drone logistics company Flytrex and on-demand goods service AHA worked together to create a small droning route for delivering packages to occupants in the nation’s capital. A DJI hexacopter was modified with a shipment bay capable of carrying around 6.5 pounds of goods for up to six miles. That’s enough for it to fly back and forth on a single itinerary making about 20 deliveries every day. It’s likewise strong enough to carry on-demand goods that AHA gives, including sushi, burgers, and beer. Flytrex flights start at $0.80 per mile.

Instead of flying immediately to each customer’s doorway, the drone starts at a loading facility, wings over a bay of the North Atlantic Ocean, and falls its bundle off to a delivery person who finishes the route from there. By using a droning, AHA doesn’t need to send its delivery drivers on an inefficient road across the bay. What would normally take about half an hour with a truck takes only four minutes with a drone.

Flytrex CEO Yariv Bash told the Verge he expects his company to incorporate more capable dronings as they become available. He hopes to continue his partnership with AHA and wants to expand his delivery network across Reykjavik so goods can be sent straight to people’s yards use an air-to-ground wire.

This isn’t the first time we’ve visualized dronings deliver goods to patrons. Amazon has been adamant about employing dronings for a while now, and successfully delivered its first package in the U.K . last December. The retail monster hasn’t provided a timeline on where reference is expects to use its Prime Air program for commercial deliveries. Nonetheless, it does country on its website that the technology could one day deliver bundles to patrons in 30 minutes or less. We’ll cheers to that.
