Amazon planning centralised air hub in Kentucky

Feb '17
Online retailer Amazon is planning to build a centralised air hub in Kentucky, to support its growing fleet of Prime Air cargo planes, which will employ around 2,000 people, when fully operational. Amazon has been present in Kentucky since the last 11 years and manages 11 fulfilment centres, employing more than 10,000 people in full time jobs.

Amazon’s Prime Air hub at CVG airport will support Amazon’s dedicated fleet of Prime Air cargo planes by loading, unloading and sorting packages.

Last year, Amazon inked agreements with two carriers to lease 40 cargo airplanes to support Prime members with fast and free shipping. As of date, 16 of those planes are in service for Amazon customers, with more planes rolling out in the near future. (AR)
