ANCHORAGE, (KTUU) - Starting Thursday, June 27th, Alaskans may notice their Amazon Prime packages arriving a little sooner than normal.
Why? Well, because Amazon Air will be utilizing Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airports’ Kulis Business Park, south of the East-West runways. Previously, Amazon contracted with private delivery services to get packages to customers.
"This is the second new airline we’ve welcomed to Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport this quarter, and another business being added to the airport’s business park on the former Kulis Air National Guard Base," said Jim Szczesniak, Airport Manager.
In a press release Tuesday, Amazon announced it’s growing the number of aircraft it operates through Amazon Air with 15 new cargo planes. The 15 aircraft are in addition to the five already leased from GE Capital Aviation Services and announced earlier this year. The aircraft will fly in the United States out of the more than 20 air gateways in the Amazon Air network.
