Amazon announces new Dallas-Fort Worth regional air hub to start operations in October


Amazon’s regional air hub at the Fort Worth Alliance Airport will open in October. The facility 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 has created more than 22,000 full-time jobs in Texas and invested over $10bn in the state since 2010, including customer fulfilment facilities, cloud infrastructure, and a 253-megawatt wind farm. Amazon expects this facility to create 300 new full-time jobs over time as operations reach full capacity.

The new regional air hub will include daily flights and allow Amazon to further serve its customer base in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.
