Amazon Prime membership has gone from 41 million subscribers in March of 2105 to 85 million subscribers in June of 2017. Subscribers pay a single price for a year of free expedited shipping.
Amazon understandably does not want to pay Federal Express or UPS so it opted to build its own air fleet.
For the first time, Amazon Prime Air Cargo Planes Are Ready For Takeoff.
FedEx Corporation and United Parcel Service, Inc. are not alone anymore, Amazon.com’s Prime Air cargo jets are ready for takeoff.
On Friday, Amazon unveiled the first Boeing 767 of its new fleet of branded cargo planes at Seattle’s Seafair Air Show. Its first-ever branded cargo plane, the Amazon One, is a Boeing 767-300 operated by cargo service provider Atlas Air.
