Thales and Skyports have announced the trial of a new drone delivery service transporting vital COVID-19 medical supplies between mainland Scotland and Isle of Mull.

Delivering supplies by drone cuts current journey times from up to 6 hours one-way by road and ferry to just 15 minutes on demand. It is major milestone for unmanned aviation in the UK with scope to be rolled out across the UK by the NHS.

Through a strategically planned launch, our team generated more than 100 stories including hits on BBC News Online, The Times, Sky News, ITV News and the Press Association.
