Amerijet in hub and route expansion

US-BASED all cargo carrier Amerijet International has signed agreements with Rickenbacker and Reno airports for the development of two US domestic air cargo hubs in Ohio and Nevada.
The freighter operator has also confirmed a route expansion to serve eleven major airports within the US.
From early July, Amerijet will begin daily operations between its new hubs, providing long‐haul air freight services, connecting eleven cities coast to coast for intercontinental and domestic freight.
Amerijet’s senior vice president for business development, Pamela Rollins, said: “Amerijet’s dedicated B767 widebody cargo planes will operate exclusively between these hubs and will provide our customers with additional options for expedited and heavyweight domestic freight.
"We believe this product fills the need for select services once the mainstay of companies such as Burlington Air Express, Kitty Hawk, Emery and other all cargo carriers who did not survive the economic turmoil of the last decade."
She added: “Our new freighter service is ideal for shipments moving on longhaul lanes over 1,500 miles, especially those in need of timecritical and highvalue, temperature controlled or hazardous material shipments.”
The new network will also connect to Amerijet’s Miami hub, providing a link to the carrier’s domestic and international routes.
Cargolux Airlines recently announced that it will be adding weekly Friday flights to its current Monday and Wednesday schedule from Hong Kong to Rickenbacker.
