US ground handle Alliance Ground International (AGI) has opened a facility at John F. Kennedy International (JFK) airport in New York.
Working with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, AGI took possession of Building 22 last autumn and began preparing it for occupancy.
“Building 22’s launch customers are Cargolux Airlines and Turkish Cargo, the latter of whom begins operations March 15,” said Warren Jones, AGI’s vice president for business development.
The 82,000 sq ft building boasts three levels of racking for imports after arrival. AGI also is providing export screening in the building through its canine partner, Global K9 Protection Group.
AGI has handled a variety of commodities at the facility so far, including humanitarian relief bound for the nearly 2m refugees of the Ukraine conflict.
Building 22 has been in the JFK market for nearly 25 years and was first opened by United Cargo in 1997.
Import and export pickups at Building 22 are managed by AGI partner CargoSprint.
AGI provides airline cargo handling services to 55 airlines at thirteen airports: Atlanta, Chicago, Fort Lauderdale, Kansas City, LaGuardia, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, Newark, New York JFK, Orlando, Salt Lake City and San Francisco.
