Amazon are continuing to pump their air delivery muscles in their efforts to outmanoeuvre the competition, using the planned launch of the Regional Air Hub as their weapon against rivalry.
The move will see Amazon planting the new air hub at the Fort Worth Alliance Airport this October to enable merchants to surprise and delight their shoppers with the instant gratification of fast delivery.
“We are excited to start flying to and from our new facility at the Fort Worth Alliance Airport very soon – this facility will allow us to offer even more selection and faster delivery to our customers.”
“This is our latest investment in Texas, and we look forward to hiring top talent from the local community.”
– Sarah Rhoads, vice president, Amazon Global Air.
The Regional Air Hub is the first build-to-suit airport project of its kind in the Amazon Air network and was designed to support Amazon Air’s larger-scale regional needs, including sortation capability and infrastructure to handle multiple flights daily. It will include daily flights and allow Amazon to further serve their customer base in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.
Amazon expect this facility to create 300 new full-time jobs over time as operations reach full capacity.
