Alphabet-owned Wing is launching its first operations in Europe, bringing its autonomous drone delivery service to Finland in the spring of 2019. The service will start with a small trial in the Helsinki area, Wing announced Tuesday. "Finns are internationally renowned for being early-adopters of new technologies, and we're looking forward to working with the community and local businesses to find the best way to implement our services," the company says on its website. Wing's drones can fly about 20 km round trip, and they can carry packages that weigh up to 1.5 kg. Customers will be able to order a range of items for delivery using the Wing app.
