Domino's partnered with Australian drone company Flirtey to test drone delivery service and aims to starting commercial deliveries later this year.

Many large companies have been working to maker commercial deliveries possible using drones, including big tech companies like Amazon and Google.

"We've always said that it doesn't make sense to have a 2-tonne machine delivering a 2-kilogram order," Domino's Group CEO and managing director Don Meij said in a statement.

"DRU DRONE is the next stage of the Company's expansion into the Artificial Intelligence space, which provides us with the ability to adopt and develop new technologies for customers to order from," the company said.
