Skyports partners with Australian drone-powered health logistics company, Swoop Aero

In a UK-first, Skyports has chosen to leverage Swoop Aero’s comprehensive aviation platform and 3D-printed electric drones to deliver a wide range of services including delivering essential medical supplies for the National Health Service (NHS) to remote areas.

With hospitals and NHS staff at capacity during the COVID-19 pandemic, deliveries of supplies between hospitals have become essential to the provision of basic healthcare. With the support of the Swoop Aero platform, Skyports’ on-demand service will allow the transport of high-value, perishable cargo such as vaccines, medicines and pathology samples.

Skyports specialises in operating end-to-end drone deliveries within the medical, e-commerce, and logistics sectors. The company is already conducting medical drone deliveries to assist the NHS in Scotland in the battle against COVID-19 and will be expanding its service in the coming months. Skyports is also helping Royal Mail to deliver to the most remote parts of the UK. The Swoop Aero platform is the latest to join Skyports’ growing fleet of world-leading unmanned aircraft.
