Drone deliveries in Edmonton now in service
DDC (Drone Delivery Canada Corp.) has put its Edmonton International Airport (“EIA”) initiative into commercial operation. This revenue generating project will be running for a 12-month term.
The project will enable defined-route deliveries from EIA to off-airport locations utilising DDC’s Sparrow drone, its Drone Spot take-off and landing zones and the company’s proprietary Flyte software. The solution will be used to transport a wide variety of cargo for the benefit of Ziing Final Mile and Apple Express, located in the industrial park in Leduc County, Alberta.
In addition to other commercial customer projects, this is DDC’s first international airport drone solution, through the assistance of its sales agent Air Canada, and the first of its kind in the country. (cj)
