Amazon Primed for New Regional Hub
In the first airport project of its kind in the Amazon Air network, the etailer has announced plans to open a regional air hub at the Fort Worth Alliance Airport in Texas.
Construction has already begun on the new air hub, which will create hundreds of new jobs. Unlike other gateways and facilities within Amazon Air's network, this regional air hub will be tailored specifically to Amazon Air's larger scale regional needs. The company is constructing the new facility with the future in mind—it includes sortation capability and infrastructure to handle multiple flights daily.
Projected to be operational in 2019, the new regional air hub will include daily flights. Amazon says its investment in the community will strengthen its presence in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex and further serve its customer base.
