(Hebron, Ky.) - About 120 new jobs appear to be destined for the Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky International Airport.
Cargo carrier Southern Air is moving its headquarters from Connecticut to the airport as part of a financial and strategic streamlining, the New Haven (Connecticut) Register newspaper reports.
Southern Air is a partner of DHL Express. The airline carries cargo for the federal government, relief agencies and shipping companies.
CEO Dan McHugh sent a memo to employees last week.
"Moving to (Cincinnati) makes a lot of sense for us, and will offer Southern Air many benefits. First, CVG is a logical base of operations for our 777 aircraft and represents our single largest hub of activity. It is also one of three global hubs for DHL Express, our largest customer," he said in the memo.
Some of the company’s current employees will be offered jobs in Cincinnati, where operations could begin as soon as April.
