Drone Delivery Canada begins commercial cargo operations from Edmonton International Airport

Drone Delivery Canada reports the start of commercial operations for its beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) deliveries from Edmonton International Airport, Canada. The revenue generating project will be operational for a 12-month term.

The project enables defined-route deliveries from EIA to off-airport property utilizing DDC’s Sparrow drone, its DroneSpot takeoff and landing zones and the Company’s proprietary FLYTE software. The solution will be used to transport a wide variety of cargo for the benefit of Ziing Final Mile and Apple Express, located in the industrial park in Leduc County, Alberta.

All operations will be conducted in accordance with appropriate Canadian regulations. Flights will be remotely monitored by DDC from its Operations Control Centre located in Vaughan, Ontario.

DDC has received an upfront fee for the drone route deployed and will receive a monthly fee for professional managed services, pursuant to the terms of the agreements. In addition to other commercial customer projects, this is DDC’s first international airport drone solution, through the assistance of its sales agent Air Canada, and the first of its kind in the country.

Drone Delivery Canada initiated flights in November 2021 to transport a wide variety of cargo following agreements with several companies first announced in July 2021.

“We are pleased to move to commercial operations at this project location. We look forward to working with all parties to utilize our patented drone solution to deliver high value goods within a regulated airspace,” said Steve Magirias, CEO of Drone Delivery Canada. “This use case was the first-place winner of the AUVSI XCELLENCE Innovation award and further positions DDC as the clear leader in Canada for drone delivery solutions.
