Ukraine’s national postal operator Nova Poshta has conducted the country’s first parcel delivery using an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV).

The company carried out a test dispatch of the parcel from Kiev to Kharkiv and back, with the parcel leaving the airfield at 07:00am and arriving in Kharkiv at 12:00pm. The return flight was also completed in five hours.

The UAV was monitored by an operator who could take control of the device in case of an emergency. For additional safety, the drone had been fitted with a parachute and was accompanied by an additional aircraft during testing.
