Aerial pizza delivery may sound futuristic but Domino's has been given the green light to test New Zealand pizza delivery via drones.
The fast food chain has partnered with drone business Flirtey to launch the first commercial drone delivery service in the world, starting later this year.
Domino's Group chief executive and managing director, Don Meij said the company had been investigating innovative and new delivery methods as business had grown.
This included looking at robotic delivery, which the government is still considering.
Details around where the trial would be held have been kept under wraps - however Domino's said it would use drone delivery alongside its usual delivery methods - and only where it would be faster than the use of a car or scooter.
The company will not offer the full range of its products for drone delivery - and only those customers within a certain distance from a store will be served from the air.
Welcome to the future...!
