(NASDAQ:AMZN) – Amazon continues to invest in ways to provide fast,
free shipping for customers. Today, at the International Paris
Air Show, the company announced a partnership with GE Capital Aviation
Services (GECAS) to lease an additional fifteen Boeing
737-800 cargo aircraft. These fifteen aircraft will be in addition to
the five Boeing 737-800’s already leased from GECAS and announced
earlier this year. The aircraft will fly in the United States out of the
more than 20 air gateways in the Amazon Air network.

“These new aircraft create additional capacity for Amazon Air, building
on the investment in our Prime Free One-Day program,” said Dave Clark,
Senior Vice President of Worldwide Operations at Amazon. “By 2021,
Amazon Air will have a portfolio of 70 aircraft flying in our dedicated
air network.”

“We’re delighted to support Amazon Air’s dedicated air network,” said
Richard Greener, GECAS Cargo’s Senior Vice President. “The capability of
the 737-800 freighter will further Amazon’s ability to provide reliable
and regional delivery to its customers for years to come.”

the rapidly growing number of customers who love fast delivery,
affordable prices and vast selection. With advanced algorithms and
software used for capacity and route planning, the Amazon Air operation
can transport hundreds of thousands of packages per day. Amazon will
open new air facilities this year at Fort Worth Alliance Airport,
Wilmington Air Park, and Chicago Rockford International Airport. The
