Taking another step forward
CVG’s position as the fastest-growing cargo airport in the US took another step forward with the announcement that Amazon will build its primary hub on the south side of the airfield. Amazon’s $1.5 billion investment will ultimately support a fleet of 100+ Prime Air cargo planes. CVG, state and local officials worked with Amazon on a deal to:
• Lease more than 1,100 acres of CVG land
• Construct three million square feet of buildings
• Add more than 2,000 jobs to CVG’s existing base of 10,000
The expected activity and landed weight of Amazon’s operations will enable CVG to continue lowering its landing fees, benefiting all carriers while ensuring CVG remains a great place to do business.
“Amazon’s Prime Air hub promises to revolutionize the fulfillment industry worldwide,” said Gov. Matt Bevin. “This new project will pay dividends to both the company and our state.”
