Expanding its Prime Air delivery service, Amazon announces global reach utilizing futuristic drones – initiating by the end of 2024.

Amazon has announced the expansion of its Amazon Prime Air drone delivery service to countries outside of the United States, starting with the United Kingdom and Italy by late 2024.

The Amazon Prime Air drone delivery service was first introduced in 2013, but it wasn’t until 2020 that it received the necessary permits and began actual flights in 2022, serving only two cities within the United States.

In addition to expanding to three more cities within the United States, Amazon has not yet disclosed the specific locations. The delivery process will be streamlined as the packages will be sent directly from Amazon’s distribution centers, eliminating the need for additional separate airports. This will greatly contribute to faster delivery times.

Furthermore, Amazon has unveiled a new drone model called the MK30, which is smaller, lighter, quieter, and can fly twice as far as its predecessors. This will help expand the service area, allowing delivery of packages weighing up to 5 pounds (2.2 kilograms) to customers within an hour.
