Dubai to welcome drone transport later this year

Dubai will welcome new drone transport from July this year, according to the Roads & Transportation Agency.

The Chinese model eHang 184 has already had test flights in the emirate, according to agency head Matt al-Tayer.

The drone can carry one passenger and has a 30 minute flight time.

A touch screen inside the craft is used to select a destination, while there are no other controls inside the craft.
