It’s been a year since Wing made its first deliveries to the Gungahlin community in Canberra, Australia. The company is grateful for the support it has received from the hundreds of customers using Wing’s drone delivery service, and the valuable feedback they’ve provided.
As communities worldwide confront the current COVID-19 pandemic, we understand a delivery option that limits the need for human-to-human contact can be helpful, and we’re trying to do what we can to support the communities we serve.
Customers in north Canberra can use the Wing platform to order a range of goods such as fresh bread, hot coffee, and other household essentials, directly to homes, from 15 local businesses.

The valuable feedback we continue to receive from customers and the community is shaping the future of drone delivery, not just in Canberra, but across the world as we expand to more communities in Australia, Finland, and the United States.
