Other than drugs into prisons the delivery of Pizzas seems to be a worldwide favourite.

We have seen attempts in England, Scotland, India, Greece the USA and now New Zealand. Fairplay Dominoes, you keep making this marketing work. Well done as well to Flirtey for jumping on the bandwagon.

I think it is time to change the narrative. Perhaps more coverage will ensue if hipster goods such as beard oil and helixing hats were the subject of trials.

Domicopter, back way back in 2013 in the UK was the first to make YouTube.

Anyhow back to the story…

Don Meij, the chief executive of Domino’s Pizza Enterprises, said:

“We’ve always said that it doesn’t make sense to have a 2-tonne machine delivering a 2kg order.”

“With the increased number of deliveries we make each year, we were faced with the challenge of ensuring our delivery times continue to decrease and that we strive to offer our customers new and progressive ways of ordering from us,” Meij said.

“Research into different delivery methods led us to Flirtey. Their success within the airborne delivery space has been impressive and it’s something we have wanted to offer our customers,” he said.

Transport Minister Simon Bridges said the government was continuing to review the laws to ensure New Zealand was at the forefront of the industry.

“As Transport Minister I have been actively promoting New Zealand as a test bed for new transport technology trials,” Bridges said. “Our enabling laws and regulation means we have the ideal environment to trial all forms of technology.”

“The trial is also a valuable opportunity for the Civil Aviation Authority, who are making sure that appropriate safety precautions are taken,” he said.
