Boeing 767-300 joins growing Amazon Air network

No primary category set

Amazon have purchased 11 new aircraft to join the ever expanding Amazon Air network which includes their first ever Boeing 767-300. The news of the additions comes during a time where ecommerce is growing and customers are still relying on fast shipping from the marketplace.

The additions will join the Amazon Air network by 2022 and help get parcels across long distances in shorter time frames to meet the needs of its growing customer base while investing in jobs and sustainable solutions to power its network.

“Our goal is to continue delivering for customers across the U.S. in the way that they expect from Amazon, and purchasing our own aircraft is a natural next step toward that goal. Having a mix of both leased and owned aircraft in our growing fleet allows us to better manage our operations, which, in turn, helps us to keep pace with meeting our customer promises.”
– Sarah Rhoads, Vice President, Amazon Global Air

Sustainable aviation fuel

Amazon have made many sustainable decisions as of late, including the decision to buy six million gallons of sustainable aviation fuel in 2020. Sustainable aviation fuels are derived from renewable resources and generate fewer carbon emissions than standard aviation fuel. The blended fuel Amazon secured includes feedstock of inedible agricultural waste fats and oils and has the power to reduce carbon emissions by up to 20 percent. This purchase was part of a 12 month deal where Amazon hope to become a key enabler in it’s production and demand.
