Irish drone delivery company Manna Aero is the first operator in Ireland to receive the light UAS operator certificate (LUC) from the Irish Aviation Authority (IAA). This opens the door to start delivering meals, packages, or medical goods using drones in other EU countries as well. In the Irish city of Galway, the company has already operated 100-150 flights a day in recent months.
Earlier today, we posted this story about Zipline planning to make deliveries by drone in the United States to help fight the Coronavirus crisis. Now, we learn that an Irish startup called Manna Aero is planning to provide similar services to self-isolated people in Ireland who are in need of medication and groceries.
