The Wing Delivery App has been the primary way to access Wing’s drone delivery service since our first deliveries. Today, we’re excited to take a first step toward opening our platform so Wing’s drone delivery service can be accessed via third party apps. To kick things off, we’re partnering with global on-demand delivery leader DoorDash for a pilot of this new functionality in Logan, Australia.

Starting this week, selected customers in Logan, Australia will be able to order a range of convenience and grocery items, pantry staples, snacks, and household essentials directly through the DoorDash App and have them delivered by a Wing drone, typically in 15 minutes or less. Initially available to a small number of households, we’ll gradually expand availability in the coming months. 

We’ve been working on this integration to allow Wing’s delivery service to be accessed through a third party app for some time, and we’re excited to be piloting it for the first time with DoorDash in Australia. It’s yet another step in our efforts to build a drone delivery service that is highly integrable and capable of scaling quickly. 

To this end, we’ve already started to transform our operations, moving them closer to retailers so our service can be deployed more quickly, easily, and economically. In Australia, we set up a drone delivery hub on the rooftop of a local shopping centre. In Dallas, we evolved this concept into our first “store-to-door” operation. And just recently we announced an expansion of this model to Australia’s Gold Coast.

We see this new functionality as a logical step on this journey to make drone delivery a plug-and-play option for more businesses and consumers – no matter what app they use.
