Description: Amazon said Tuesday it’s buying 11 used Boeing 767-300 jets from Delta and WestJet, the latest sign of how cargo carriers are growing while passenger airlines rush to shrink their fleets as Covid-19 hurts travel demand.


Date: Jan 05, 2021


Questions for discussion:

  • From an operations point of view, why does building an independent fleet make sense for Amazon ?
  • What do you think this development means for the air travel and transportation industry after passenger travel returns to more normal levels of operations?
