Cyprus Post looking to utilise drones for deliveries

Drones are already used to make deliveries

The Cyprus Post is seeking ways to utilise unmanned drones to deliver parcels of up to four kilos, Andreas Gregoriou, Director of the Department of Postal Services, told the Cyprus News Agency on Thursday.

To that end, the department is in contact with the University of Cyprus Kios Research Centre, according to Gregoriou.

“We are at a very satisfactory level to see how we can utilise this new technology in order to render the Cyprus postal services more effective and enable them to deliver correspondence, in particular parcels and small packages on time,” he said.

He said that they would be in a position to utilise drones for parcel delivery this year in line with civil aviation regulations.

“We estimate that by the end of 2019, early 2020, we should be able to say something more specific, at least for a pilot implementation of this concept,” he added.
