Drone deliveries in Reykjavik

Iceland’s largest online marketplace, is to expand the number of drones it flies across the country’s capital, Reykjavik. The company Aha, which launched a limited trial with Israeli company Flytrex last year, will phase in further drones over the next two years (2018). Many Reykjavik residents could soon expect drone deliveries to their door. The move puts Iceland in the vanguard of drone deployment, ahead of other European capitals.
