The first drone delivery of takeaway food will begin in Dublin in March.
Drone company Manna has confirmed they are partnering with Just Eat and takeaway company Camile Thai and Ben & Jerry's to provide food deliveries on a pilot basis to customers located in University College Dublin.
The company is aiming for deliveries to reach customers within three minutes. Customers in an appropriate area will see the option for delivery by drone on their Just Eat app. The food is loaded onto the drone and make its way to the destination.
The customers receive a notification once the drone is above their address and the food is lowered down in a box.
Manna CEO and founder Bobby Healy said drone delivery provides a faster, cleaner, safer, cheaper and higher quality alternative to road-based delivery. "We are excited about how that will improve the world."
