ANNOUNCING BODENSEE-AIRPORT FRIEDRICHSHAFEN
We are pleased to announce that DRONAMICS has signed Bodensee-Airport Friedrichshafen (IATA: FDH) as its 4th airport partner in Germany becoming part of the broader European droneport network currently totalling 39 airports in 12 European countries.
The airport is a vital point in the coverage of Germany securing access to the major industrial hubs of the state of Baden-Wuerttemberg that have strong traditions in the Automotive and Aerospace industries. Joining the already announced German droneport destinations of Paderborn-Lippstadt, Rostock–Laage, and Weeze, the four German droneport locations now can serve a total of 14 million people within 1-hour drive of the signed airports.
DRONAMICS will operate same-day flights within the network using its proprietary DRONAMICS “Black Swan” large unmanned cargo drones, each with a capacity of 350 kg and range of up to 2,500 km, reducing time, cost, and emissions by up to 80% compared to traditional air cargo.
The signed agreement outlines the necessary space for cargo storage and handling and parking space for the drone as well as the commercial framework, which will be applied after an introduction phase. As part of the agreement, DRONAMICS will base its standardized droneport equipment, hire and train local staff to operate and handle the unmanned drone flights. The plans for trials and the first commercial flights at the airport are scheduled for 2023.
