Amazon Air’s New Regional Hub at Fort Worth Alliance Airport, Texas

Posted on: 12/12/2018   |   Category: Press Releases

Today, Amazon announced plans to open a Regional Air Hub at the Fort Worth Alliance Airport. The Regional Air Hub will include a brand new facility that will be built to suit Amazon Air’s needs.  Construction has already begun on the new facility, which will create hundreds of new jobs, and is the first airport project of its kind in the Amazon Air network. Unlike other gateways and facilities within Amazon Air’s network, the Regional Air Hub will be tailored specifically to Amazon Air’s larger scale regional needs.  The Regional Air Hub will be constructed with the future in mind to include sortation capability and infrastructure to handle multiple flights daily.

Projected to be operational next year, the new Regional Air Hub will include daily flights. Amazon’s investment in the community will strengthen its presence in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex and further serve its customer base. 

“We are excited to build a brand new facility from the ground up at the Fort Worth Alliance Airport,” said Sarah Rhoads, Director of Amazon Air. “The new facility is the first of its kind for us and we’re thrilled to ensure we have the capacity to continue to delight our customers.”

“I am excited to welcome Amazon Air and the hundreds of jobs this regional hub will create in the Ft. Worth area. Alliance continues to draw the very best. It more than meets expectations year after year,” said Congresswoman Kay Granger.

“I am glad that Amazon Air selected Fort Worth Alliance Airport for its newest facility. As is proved time and again, North Texas is a great place to build a business and we welcome Amazon Air as the newest addition to our community,” said Representative Michael C. Burgess, M.D. (R-TX) 

Fort Worth Chamber senior vice president Chris Strayer said Amazon’s move to Alliance was a benefit from increased regional partnerships with communities it Tarrant County. “I’m sure we will continue to work with Amazon in the future to identify any other new opportunities in our area,” he said in a statement.

“Haslet is very happy and excited to welcome another Amazon facility to our city,” said Mayor Bob Golden. “Amazon has been an awesome partner and we look forward to expanding that relationship in the future.”

“We are pleased to grow our partnership with Amazon here at Alliance,” said Bill Burton, executive vice president at Hillwood, the developer. “As one of the world’s most influential retail, technology and supply chain logistics companies, Amazon’s selection of Fort Worth Alliance Airport will continue to transform the airport’s role within the region.”
