Flirtey, which developed the food delivery drone for Domino’s, is one of the world’s fastest growing drone delivery services and has even done work with NASA.

The company says the new delivery system uses advanced autonomous technology, complex safety systems and special packaging to adapt to varying weather conditions and flight paths.

Flirtey drones are built with carbon fibre and 3D printed parts.

“We are moving closer and closer to widespread store-to-door drone delivery,” Flirty chief executive Matthew Sweeny says.

“To conduct these deliveries in an urban environment while delivering a hot, fresh pizza, is a validation of our delivery system that assures Flirtey is prepared for mass market deliveries around the globe.”
