  • The Details of Amazons new Cargo hub
  • What the CEO of Cincinnati International Airport thinks of the partnership

Amazon has been increasing its operations at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) and has now opened an 800,000 sq ft facility, making CVG the undisputed national leader in air cargo. This will create 100s, even 1000s of new jobs around Cincinnati as well as speed up parcel delivery around the United States. According to a CNBC report, Amazon’s Cincinnati Airport hub is designed to have the capacity for 100 Amazon-branded planes and handle an estimated 200 flights per day. It gives Amazon ample scope to grow. It’s good news for CVG. In 2019, the busy airport handled 1,248,779 tonnes of cargo. In 2020, that increased to 1,434,132 tonnes. 

The airport’s CEO, Candace McGraw said “CVG is proud to be home to Amazon Air’s primary US air cargo hub, We’ve worked hard to ensure our airport is a great place to do business, and we couldn’t be more pleased to partner with Amazon on the transformational impact this hub is having.” In addition to Amazon, Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport hosts planes from eight other cargo airlines.
