Amazon Air will handle two flights a day from the new site
Amazon has opened its very first air freight center in Europe, according to Ecommerce News. The 20,000 square meter cargo facility is located at the Leipzig-Halle Airport in Germany and will be used to sort parcels and to load and unload trucks and aircraft.
The air freight center will create a new connection within the company’s European logistics network. Amazon has also leased two Boeing 737-800s, which have the typical design and logo of Amazon Air. These two airplanes will complement the existing fleet of over 70 aircraft that Amazon Air operates worldwide.
We’ve reported that Amazon has stopped its advertisements for Black Friday in France after the government said it was unfair to small shops. The coronavirus lockdown has forced them to close the doors as a part of implemented measures.
