United Parcel Service Inc. (UPS) is the first US company to be given government approval by the Federal Aviation Administration to run a drone airline. UPS plans to expand deliveries on hospital campuses and eventually other industries. Its subsidiary, UPS Flight Forward, has operated more than 1,000 flights at Wake Forest University’s medical centre in Raleigh, North Carolina.
