Following talks of partnerships to get UberAir off the ground, Uber recently announced at an Elevate event that food deliveries via drones are imminent. During the company’s third Elevate conference, it discussed the future of their flying car service, noting that its initiative will go hand in hand with its drone deliveries.

This will allow an electric aircraft to travel in the sky for swift deliveries, bypassing traffic below.
