DALLAS — Amazon announced its Regional Air Hub at the Fort Worth Alliance Airport will open in October. 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.
Amazon expects this facility to create 300 new full-time jobs over time as operations reach full capacity.
“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,” said Sarah Rhoads, Vice President of Amazon Global Air. “This is our latest investment in Texas and we look forward to hiring top talent from the local community.”
The new Regional Air Hub will include daily flights and allow Amazon to further serve its customer base in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.
Since 2010, Amazon has created more than 22,000 full-time, full-benefit jobs in Texas and invested more than $10 billion in the state, from building customer fulfillment facilities, cloud infrastructure, and a 253-megawatt wind farm, to compensation to its teams. These direct investments contributed an additional $9 billion to the Texas economy and generated an additional 32,000 indirect jobs on top of the company’s direct hires. More than 130,000 authors, developers, and small and mid-sized businesses in Texas are also growing their businesses with Amazon.Tagged with Amazon
