World’s first cargo drone airline with license to operate in Europe Dronamics has been awarded a EUR 2.5 million grant by the European Commission under the prestigious European Innovation Council Accelerator program. The EIC has also expressed a material commitment to support Dronamics’ upcoming Series A round. The grant will support the development and roll-out of Dronamics’ cargo drone fleet, the deployment of the first droneports in its network as well as operations in Europe. The European Union is home to millions of people who live in territories that often take days to reach by traditional freight. Dronamics aims to democratize air freight, by enabling affordable, and sustainable same day delivery for businesses and communities everywhere, especially remote and under-served ones.
