DHL Plans Yet Another Expansion At CVG
By Mike Perleberg
(Hebron, Ky.) – DHL is adding 100 new jobs over the next five years at the Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky International Airport.
The international shipping company wants to increase its efficiency at the hub by adding new people and spending $46 million on new equipment and improvements, The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
The Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority has approved $900,000 in tax credits for the expansion project. The credits are on the condition that DHL maintains its current full-time employment of 757.
DHL plans to add the 100 new workers through 2019 and stay at that level through 2024. The jobs will pay an average hourly wage of $23.50, according to the KEDFA.
The Germany-based shipping giant has expanded several times since relocating from Wilmington, Ohio to the airport in Boone County in 2009.
DHL’s growth isn’t the only news to come from the airport this week. On Thursday, Frontier Airlines announced it would be adding new commercial passenger flights to five new cities later this year.
