The first package has been delivered by drone in Monaco as part of the Ever expo. Inside was a precious cargo: the beloved Monegasque speciality, barbajuan.

HSH Prince Albert II, Bernard Fautrier, Vice-President of the Prince Albert II Foundation and Jean-Luc Delcroix, Director of La Poste Monaco, were present during the momentous occasion on Thursday 9th May.

The aircraft, commissioned by Mc Clic, took off from the post office at Place du Campanin in Fontvieille and travelled to the forecourt of the Grimaldi Forum carrying Monaco’s favourite pastry, barbajuan.

“I am satisfied that this first ‘postal flight’ went perfectly well,” Delcroix said at the end of the demonstration, signalling that La Poste Monaco would like to eventually use the service in the Principality.
