HEBRON, Ky. (LEX 18)– Amazon executives broke ground at a huge development Tuesday in Northern Kentucky.
Amazon’s Prime Air cargo facility will be at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport.
The hub is scheduled to open in 2021.
Amazon says the project will create 2,000 jobs in the region.
The 3-million square foot hub will include space to house 100 planes and a 250,000 square foot loading dock.
We’re investing $1.5 billion in our new air hub to get you your packages faster. Three million square feet, and it’s going to create 2,000 jobs. And if you’re guessing that driving a front loader was fun, you’re right! #amazon #prime pic.twitter.com/Cud4orKrC4
