Amazon to start drone deliveries in Italy late 2024

David Carbon, Amazon’s vice-president for its Prime Air division, said Wednesday that the online retailer will start delivering packages via drone in Italy and the United Kingdom by late 2024.

“Our aim is to deliver 500 million products with drones by the end of the decade, so that it is safer than going to a shop in a car and buying them,” Carbon told the Amazon ‘Delivering the Future’ in Seattle.

The drone deliveries will start with packages weighing up to about 2.26kg to clients that meet certain conditions.
