Amazon to build its Prime Air primary hub at Cincinnati

Amazon has announced it will build its primary hub on the south side of the airfield at Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky Airport (CVG).

Amazon’s $1.4 billion investment will support a fleet of 100+ Prime Air cargo planes.

CVG, state and local officials worked with Amazon on a deal to:

• Lease more than 900 acres of CVG land for 50+ years
• Construct three million square feet of buildings
• Add more than 2,700 jobs to CVG’s existing base of 10,000

The expected activity and landed weight of Amazon’s operations will enable CVG to continue lowering its landing fees, benefiting all carriers while ensuring CVG remains a great place to do business.


The Air Hub at the Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky International Airport will open in 2021.

Recently, Amazon also announced a gateway operation to launch in Wilmington, Ohio, in 2019 as well as an expanded operation in Rockford, Illinois.
