SpiceXpress to deliver essential goods by drone

SpiceXpress has planned to use drones for quicker, faster and cost-effective delivery of medical, pharma and essential supplies and e-commerce products. The airline has got the approval from the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) to conduct drone trial for essential goods delivery. SpiceXpress will be looking at last-mile delivery from the warehouse and the prime focus will be on delivering medical emergency parcels and essential supplies in remote areas.
Ajay Singh, Chairman and Managing Director, SpiceJet says, “Testing of drone technology for last-mile connectivity and cost-effective cargo deliveries are a big leap in the air transportation of essential and non-essential supplies in India. We are extremely optimistic about using this exciting new mode of delivery for products like perishables and medicines which have a smaller shelf-life and need urgent deliveries in the remotest parts of India.”
