Alphabet's Wing Drone Delivery Business To Take Flight In Finland

Google parent Alphabet Inc's drone delivery business Wing will launch its first European delivery service in Finland in the spring of 2019, it has announced.

Wing was spun out of Alphabet's X research division in July to become an independent company within Alphabet and is led by James Ryan Burgess.

Testing Delivery

Wing said it has spent the last 18 months testing drone delivery in south-eastern Australia, partnering with local businesses to deliver a range of food and drinks, medicine and household items.

It is part of Alphabet's Other Bets division, which already comprises cyber-security company Chronicle, self-driving car project Waymo, Loon that makes internet-delivery balloons and life sciences division Verily.
