Amazon Air flies from Wichita
A week ago, Amazon Air launched a daily cargo service at the Wichita Eisenhower National Airport with an inaugural flight. This is Amazon Air’s first regional gateway in Kansas to support fast, efficient package deliveries to Amazon customers throughout the region and country.
Amazon Air flights will be operated by Silver Airways using an ATR72-500 aircraft and operate daily between Wichita and Fort Worth Alliance Airport (AFW). “We are proud to welcome Amazon Air to Wichita Eisenhower Airport,” said Jesse Romo, director of airports, Wichita Airport Authority.
The Wichita Airport Authority leased 994 sqm in the air cargo terminal to Trego-Dugan Aviation that has been contracted to sort and load Amazon packages bound for their next destination. (cj)
