Domino’s has teamed up with drone-maker Flirtey to deliver hot pizzas via autonomous drones
The first successful delivery tests took place in New Zealand earlier this week.
Domino’s Group CEO Don Meij said:
“We are thrilled with the results of our trials, and look forward to expanding DRU Drone by Flirtey soon. We invested in this partnership, and technology, because we believe drone delivery will be an essential component of our pizza deliveries, so even more customers can receive the freshest, hottest pizza we can offer.”
Flirtey is the world’s leading drone delivery service, with a mission to save lives and change lifestyles by making delivery instant. The startup has worked with NASA, and top universities to create the technology and logistics systems for a mass-market drone delivery network. Flirtey was also the first company to conduct an FAA-approved delivery in the U.S., the first to perform a fully autonomous drone delivery to a home and the first to launch a commercial drone delivery service.
