Dronamics, the middle-mile cargo drone developer and operator, has announced the expansion of its European Droneport Network with two new locations.
The new partners are Mannheim City Airport (Germany) and UAS Denmark Test Center hosted at Odense’s Hans Christian Andersen Airport (Denmark). Both will host the Dronamics Black Swan cargo aircraft, enabling same-day delivery service and providing access to more than six million people within a one-hour drive of the airports. The expansion sees the Dronamics European Droneport network grow to a total of 42 locations in 14 European countries. Each droneport will enable same-day flights within the network using Dronamics flagship Black Swan large cargo drones, each with a capacity of 350kg and a flying range of up to 2,500km.
Mannheim airport comes as the fifth droneport location in Germany, providing access to the thriving technology hub of the Rhine-Neckar metropolitan region. Hans Christian Andersen Airport serves Denmark’s third-largest city and its manufacturing, robotics and shipbuilding industries. Its strategic location provides excellent connectivity to Copenhagen and mainland Jutland.
After the unveiling of the first unit of the Black Swan aircraft back in December 2021, Dronamics has scheduled its first commercial flights connecting Malta to Italy in 2022, followed by a gradual roll-out to other airports in the growing network.
