(Hebron, Ky.) – It has been years in the making, but Amazon Air Hub operations have begun at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport.

Amazon announced the opening of its state-of-the-art air cargo hub on Wednesday.

The 800,000-square-foot sortation building sits on an over 600-acre campus that features seven buildings, an expansive new ramp for aircraft parking, and a multi-story vehicle parking structure.

The hub has been in development for more than four years and will serve as the central hub for Amazon Air’s U.S. cargo network.

Additionally, the $1.5 billion investment will eventually create thousands of jobs, including load planning, management of package sortation, and robotics technology.

All regular, full-time employees will have access to wages of up to $19.50 per hour, benefits, and 401K.

“The Amazon Air Hub at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport will make Kentucky the undisputed national leader in air cargo,” said Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear. “In addition to creating thousands of direct and indirect jobs, this hub puts Kentucky at the center of Amazon’s U.S. distribution network. Across the coming years, Amazon Air will help attract more manufacturers, service providers, and tech companies to Kentucky seeking to take similar advantage of our key geographic location. Congratulations and thanks to Amazon for this monumental investment in our state and workforce. We look forward to continuing the commonwealth’s longstanding and successful partnership with Amazon for decades to come.”

Since 2010, Amazon has created more than 18,000 jobs in Kentucky and invested more than $20 billion across the state in infrastructure and compensation for local employees.
