Amazon has completed its first drone delivery order for a customer in Cambridge near its warehouse.
The etail giant successfully delivered an order for an Amazon Fire TV stick and bag of popcorn to a nearby shopper’s garden earlier this month.
The online retailer has opened the trial to two shoppers based near its Cambridgeshire warehouse, but has said it hopes to expand the trial for dozens of customers in the coming months.
The delivery method, called Prime Air, is available to customers participating in the trial seven days a week.
However, the drone can currently only fly in clear weather conditions, during daytime hours, and cannot carry deliveries weighing more than 2.6kg.
Amazon customers that are participating in the trial can order drone deliveries for no extra cost.
The online giant said the delivery, which took place last week, was made using a full autonomous drone with no human pilot involved in the process.
The etailer first announced its plan to deliver orders by drone in 2013 and and was given the go-ahead to test drone delivery in Cambridge in July.
