Amazon Air has opened the first regional air freight center in Europe at Leipzig-Halle Airport in Schkeuditz, Saxony. The new operation creates additional opportunities to inspire Amazon Air customers in Germany and throughout Europe. The facility will create a new connection within Amazon Air's European logistics network. Furthermore, it will offer Amazon Prime members a wider choice and more flexible delivery options at lower prices. 

200 extra jobs

The delivery of customer orders has already started at the site. Two flights a day will soon be handled. The air freight center creates over 200 jobs in the region, in addition to the 1,500 existing Amazon jobs in Leipzig. Amazon has been rooted in the Leipzig region since 2006.

Dietmar Jüngling, the former Location Manager of the Amazon logistics center in Leipzig, is in charge of the new location. “We are delighted with the support of the community in this project, with which we are creating jobs, that is a long-term, positive effect for the region. We created a safe working environment and worked hard to put together and train a team. Our goal is to be able to reliably serve the changing needs of our customers in these difficult times and beyond".

Keep delivering parcels to customers

This new operation of Amazon Air in Europe will help to keep delivering parcels to customers. In these times, people in the region rely on items being delivered to their doorstep on time. Amazon Air also helped transport important personal protective items during COVID-19, including giving out 29 million masks, 100,000 thermometers and 3 million gloves to Amazon employees in Europe.
