Amazon Air Hub Gets Closer To Taking Flight At CVG
By Travis Thayer
(Hebron, Ky.) – Amazon Prime Air has added 210 acres of land for its future hub at CVG.
The online retail giant announced the land purchase on Friday, which furthers the company’s investment to bring an air hub to the Greater Cincinnati area.

CVG has already agreed to lease 900 acres to Amazon for 50 years, in addition to investing $5 million in infrastructure to support the hub.
Last February, Amazon announced they would invest a staggering $1.5 billion to build a new, centralized air hub at Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky International Airport.
Amazon’s new hub is expected to bring up to 2,700 new jobs to northern Kentucky. At least 600 jobs are anticipated to be full-time positions.
The new Amazon hub will support its growing fleet of Prime Air cargo planes. Operations there will include loading, unloading and sorting packages.
