New Delhi: Logistics operator Blue Dart on Wednesday announced the launch of drone deliveries in collaboration with Skye Air and said the partnership will initially focus on the growing e-commerce sector.

The move marks a significant advancement towards cleaner and more efficient delivery solutions, Blue Dart said in a statement.

It has conducted VLOS (Visual Line of Sight) trials conducted in Vikarabad (Hyderabad) in 2021 and BVLOS (Beyond Visual Line of Sight) trials under the Telangana Government’s ‘Medicine from the Sky’ initiative as part of a consortium with Skye Air.
