Amazon posted a new update to the Prime Air project, which would provide 30 minute deliveries by drone to select locations. This update comes two years after the original announcement and introduces a redesign to the drone design. Today’s update includes a video narrated by ex-Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson, who is currently working on a new series for Amazon.
We’re excited about Prime Air — a future delivery system from Amazon designed to safely get packages to customers in 30 minutes or less using small unmanned aerial vehicles, also called drones. Prime Air has great potential to enhance the services we already provide to millions of customers by providing rapid parcel delivery that will also increase the overall safety and efficiency of the transportation system. Putting Prime Air into service will take some time, but we will deploy when we have the regulatory support needed to realize our vision.
