Taxi hailing app Uber is bringing back its popular ice cream delivery service to Singapore, but this time it will also be delivering ice cream to customers from the sky via drone as well as the road via runners and electric cars.

Starting today, Friday 24 July, and running until 5pm, customers will be able to order ice cream through the Uber app. Each request is eligible for four servings from RedMart for $15 and payment can be made through the app.

The fast-growing taxi hailing firm is asking its customers to share their experiences using the #UberIceCream hashtag and @Uber_SING on Twitter.

The marketing idea is part of a global campaign that is running in 253 cities in 59 countries.

The news emerges soon after Uber Singapore hired Ogilvy senior account executive and former digital media editor of The Asian Banker Amrita Sareen as a marketing manager.
