Amazon Air to establish package-sorting operation in Wilmington Air Park

Amazon has announced plan to open a new “air gateway” and package sorting operation at Wilmington Air Park, Clinton County, Ohio reports Journal-news.com.

An Amazon representative said the online retailer rents space at airports for the loading and unloading of customer packages to and from the aircraft, from trucks that drop off and pick up packages, and an on-site sort area for sorting packages based on their next destination. The company calls those operations “air gateways.”

“Amazon is growing its investment in the community with a gateway for their Amazon Air planes at the Wilmington Air Park as it continues to build out its air hub operation at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG),” the company said in a statement.

A company announcement also said:

“We are excited to bring our Amazon Air operation to KILN (Wilmington Air Park) while we continue building out our central air hub at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport,” said Sarah Rhoads, director of Amazon Air. “We are opening an operation in Wilmington to ensure we have the capacity to continue to delight our customers.”
