Amazon Air launched operations at their first-ever regional air hub in Europe this month at the Leipzig/Halle Airport in Schkeuditz, Germany. The new operations expand the regional capacity of Amazon Air to continue delighting customers in Germany and throughout Europe.
The 20,000 square meter cargo facility at Leipzig/Halle Airport will create an additional connection within Amazon’s fulfillment network in Europe, bringing greater selection and more flexible delivery options at a lower price to Prime members. The company has also leased two branded Boeing 737-800 aircraft from GECAS that will be operated by ASL Airlines on behalf of Amazon Air in Europe. These aircraft will join Amazon’s existing fleet of more than 70 aircraft operating within Amazon Air’s global dedicated air cargo network by end of year.
