KIEV, June 1, 2016 – UkrPoshta, the Ukrainian national postal service, and Flytrex Aviation, an Israeli drone technology company, announced today a start for drone delivery testing within Ukrainian cities. The testing started in Bucha.
In search of providing cheap and quick urban package delivery UkrPoshta has decided to test parcel delivery via drones, the first service of its kind. It is expected that users will be able to schedule package deliveries to designated drop off areas within their city from their smartphones.

 

“It was only a matter of time before drone delivery became a reality. We are thrilled to be at the forefront of this postal revolution and the start of testing drone deliveries,” said Ihor Tkachuk, acting Director General of UkrPoshta “Our customers expect efficiency in their deliveries – low costs, speedy delivery, no-hassle experiences. We believe that drones will not only bring our customers the satisfaction of easy deliveries, but also the chance to fly into the future of postal services.
