Ireland’s An Post autonomous drone mail delivery flights start

The Irish Post Office An Post has started its first autonomous mail drone delivery flights.

The first delivery was made on 5 July 2018, when a joint operation between An Post and SkyTango ( saw a parcel-carrying drone cross 5km of sea between Roonagh Pier in County Mayo and Clare Island in 11 minutes, an An Post spokesman told Unmanned Airspace.

This was An Post’s first autonomous over-water drone flight and was a test flight for other postal delivery operations throughout the country.

More information on the An Post autonomous mail delivery service will be published shortly.
