With the announcement that it will begin operating in Finland’s capital, Helsinki, Wing has now received approvals to make deliveries in three countries since the start of 2019 alone. Australia was first, granting permission in April for the company to make small deliveries from local vendors in the capital city of Canberra. And later that month, the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration approved Wing deliveries in Virginia, slated to begin within the next few months.

The Helsinki program will launch in June in the populous Vuosaari neighborhood. Customers will be able to order items from Herkku Food Market, a gourmet supermarket, or the local Cafe Monami. Flights will be limited by distance and weight, at 10 km (6.2 miles) and 1.5 kg (3.3 pounds), respectively. Customers should expect to receive their stuff about 10 minutes after ordering.
