With the debut of Amazon Air, Amazon India has become the first e-commerce company in the nation with a dedicated air freight network. Two Quikjet Cargo Airlines Boeing 737-800 aircraft with cargo capacity will be used by Amazon Air. Every day, each Amazon Airplane will fly over Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Delhi, and Mumbai while transporting thousands of parcels. Amazon Air will make last-mile deliveries of goods from our fulfillment centers more quicker.
According to Sarah Rhoads, Vice President, of Amazon Global Air, “We’re excited to debut Amazon Air in India to ensure we can give our increasing customer base a great selection, cheap costs, and faster deliveries.” With this declaration, Amazon reiterates its commitment to fund India’s logistics infrastructure, and increase local employment.
The Telangana minister Kalvakuntla Taraka Rama Rao, who oversees Municipal Administration & Urban Development, Industries & Commerce, and Information Technology, inducted the new aircraft today in Hyderabad alongside Amazon’s senior management. With its strategic geographic location, enhanced domestic air network, and the rising popularity of e-commerce in the nation, Hyderabad has become a significant hub for e-commerce distribution, according to Akhil Saxena, Vice President – Customer Fulfillment (APAC, MENA & LATAM) and WW Customer Service, Amazon.
Hyderabad has become a significant center for e-commerce distribution and supply chain activities, and Telangana provides a favorable environment for the growth of multi-modal connectivity. We have been striving to improve the state’s air cargo infrastructure, therefore we are pleased that Amazon Air has launched. This will help to further establish Hyderabad as a national cargo hub and will increase employment prospects in the state, according to KT Rama Rao.
The introduction of Amazon Air would help 1.1 million additional sellers in India, fostering expansion for related industries like shipping and packing. “This is a tremendous stride forward for the aviation sector as well as a very significant step for both merchants and customers. “Amazon Air arrives in India at a crucial time, and we are celebrating a critical milestone in our global ambition to reshape the future of logistics,” added Saxena.
