Swiss Post resumes medical drone deliveries

As of today (27 August) Swiss Post and Matternet have resumed their drone operations supporting hospitals in Switzerland. The flights paused during the pandemic.

The first drone flights are to begin in Lugano but test flights are set to begin out of University Hospital Zurich on 31 August and from September regular drone flights are set to take laboratory samples at the two locations.

Lugano’s Ospedale Civico and Ospedale Italiano will be connected with drone flights, and in Zurich University Hospital Zurich and University of Zurich are to be connected.
