Amazon is to start trialling its drone delivery service in the UK

Amazon is to start trialling its drone delivery service in the UK, after being granted the approval of the government to carry out tests without some of the usual flying restrictions.

Amazon were granted permission by a cross-government team, supported by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), to test drones without being shackled to existing rules that govern the use of remote-controlled aircraft.

Amazon will be able to fly drones beyond the line of sight in both rural and suburban areas; test the drones' ability to avoid obstacles; and test-fly fleets of autonomous drones overseen by one person.

Paul Misener, Amazon's Vice President of Global Innovation Policy and Communications, said: "This announcement strengthens our partnership with the UK and brings Amazon closer to our goal of using drones to safely deliver parcels in 30 minutes to customers in the UK and elsewhere around the world."
