The project’s first phase in Cyberjaya will assess the capability, experience, approval process, deployment readiness and service expansion of the drone operators. Upon successful trials, the service will be deployed and might be expanded beyond the sandbox environment.
Responding to the partnership, Khairy Jamaluddin, Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation, said, “The drone delivery of goods can be expanded and scaled up beyond e-commerce, such as delivery of essential or medical supplies to areas that are rural, remote, or affected by natural disasters.”
AirAsia Group CEO Tony Fernandes said that drone delivery would enable the company to keep up with the increasing demand for e-commerce and remain agile in a shifting economic landscape.
