Report: Amazon Air puts 70% of US population within next-day reach

Amazon is doubling down on next-day delivery. By using their own air freight in conjunction with other airlines, they are abot to reach 70% of the population.

I loved two-day service and never thought I needed something faster. But I have to admit, getting it the very next day is a rush. And sometimes, that’s exactly what I need— especially with Covid lurking, it’s an alternative to going to the store and being exposed.

One of the interesting features of the article is the map of Amazon’s air service network. It’s as prodigious as any major airline. Of course, it’s only for packages.

I wonder what business they could do with this network should they decide to start offering air package transport for other companies. For instance for pharmaceuticals.
