Amazon in the News
« on: June 22, 2016, 04:43:49 PM »
Just saw this on Yahoo:

https://www.yahoo.com/finance/news/amazon-starting-own-shipping-business-163640417.html

It states that Amazon has leased 40 planes and Moody's says that could handle between 20% and 30% of its cargo volume.
Even if Amazon leases 100 planes for 100% of their cargo volume, Wilmington's active runway could handle that traffic on its own.
This is according to DHL flight numbers told to be by a former DHL aircraft maintenance mechanic when he worked at the Air Park.
