Amazon Air adds flights to Manchester-Boston Airport

Amazon Air B767

Amazon Air has launched a daily cargo service between Manchester-Boston Regional Airport (MHT) and Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG).

The service started yesterday and will operate once per week utilising a Boeing 767-300 freighter aircraft.

Flights will be operated by Atlas Air, with ground handling by Trego-Dugan Aviation and aircraft maintenance by Keenan Technical Industries.

The new flight comes after the airport and developed Realterm opened a 65,000 sq ft multitenant cargo building with three widebody parking slots.

This is Amazon Air’s first expansion into New Hampshire where MHT is located and the e-commerce airline is the first tenant to operate from the new facility.

Airport director Ted Kitchens said: “Enhancing our air cargo facilities with the introduction of Amazon Air underscores the economic development that is occurring not only in Manchester but throughout New Hampshire and Northern New England.”

MHT said it was one of the 50 busiest cargo airports in the US and has seen several years of record-breaking cargo volumes.

Earlier this year, Amazon scrapped plans to develop air cargo facilities at Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey, US.
