The new cargo facility will more than double the amount of cargo warehouse space at the airport.
Amazon Air launched daily cargo service today at Manchester-Boston Regional Airport (MHT). The inaugural flight from Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) arrived early Thursday morning. Amazon Air will begin with one daily Boeing 767-300 flight.
MHT is recognized as a top 50 cargo airport in the United States and has seen several years of record-breaking cargo volume. This trend of higher cargo volumes is expected to continue with the opening of this new facility.
The 65,000-square-foot multitenant cargo building was built through a partnership with the airport and real estate investment company Realterm. The new facility offers three widebody aircraft parking positions managed by the airport, with the option to expand to a fourth.
This is Amazon Air’s first expansion into New Hampshire, and Amazon is the first tenant to operate from the new facility. Flights will be operated by cargo airline Atlas Air, with ground handling by Trego-Dugan Aviation and aircraft maintenance by Keenan Technical Industries.
The new facility will drive economic growth in the region for years to come. In addition to creating hundreds of jobs in the Granite State, the multitenant facility will allow for better connectivity in the world of e-commerce, further positioning the airport as an economic hub for the region.
Cargo activity played a vital role during the pandemic to help offset decreased air travel and passenger revenues. With the additional aircraft that this facility will accommodate, the Airport will be able to continue its trend of lowering airline operating costs.
