Wing and Apian have partnered to begin medical drone delivery services in Ireland and jointly explore opportunities in the UK.

The companies expect to begin working with hospitals and other care providers in Dublin later this year. 

Over the coming months, Wing and Apian will work with healthcare and pharmacy partners to create a rapid medical delivery network in South Dublin. This efficient network, leveraging Wing’s aircraft and automation, will serve to improve patient experience while reducing traffic congestion and emissions in the community. 

Wing’s highly automated delivery drones are believed to be well-suited for a range of useful healthcare applications; its technology is designed to deliver pharmacy items, laboratory samples, and medical devices and supplies very quickly in urban and suburban environments.  

The Apian platform integrates both healthcare and aviation systems, creating a fully automated, on-demand delivery system that improves patient health outcomes and staff wellbeing.

Together, Wing and Apian believe that healthcare should benefit from on-demand delivery much like consumers do in their personal lives. Medical drone delivery can provide a faster, more reliable, lower-cost solution than ground-based alternatives. The companies aim to address speed, inefficiencies, and also environmental challenges by reducing vehicles on the road. Wing’s operations require very little infrastructure and can be set up in a range of spaces, making them suitable for a wide variety of healthcare facilities. 

This operation will be Wing’s second in Ireland, following the public demonstration services in Lusk, where thoughtful input and the collaborative approach from the community have provided invaluable feedback on the future of drone delivery.
