FORT WORTH (WBAP/KLIF)- Amazon announces its Regional Air Hub at the Fort Worth Alliance Airport will open in October. The Regional Air Hub is the first build-to-suit airport project of its kind in the Amazon Air network and was designed to support Amazon Air’s larger scale regional needs, including sortation capability and infrastructure to handle multiple flights daily. “This is something Alliance Airport was designed and built for,” said Bill Burton Executive Vice President of Hillwood, developer for Alliance.
Amazon expects this facility to create 300 new full-time jobs over time as operations reach full capacity. “There’s been tremendous growth in North Texas but continuing to bring companies like Amazon will have plenty of opportunities for growth as well,” said Burton. Job seekers interested in learning more about Amazon’s new positions in Dallas-Fort Worth and across Texas can attend the Dallas Amazon Career Day event on September 17th.

The new Regional Air Hub will include daily flights and allow Amazon to further serve its customer base in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.
