常言道,人生中唯一确定的两件事情就是死亡和税收。然而作为航空货运人士,《空运通讯》对这个名单还要再加上一条:每周至少有一条关于亚马逊的最新小道消息。这家总部位于美国的电子商务巨头,对于其发展规划并不算是讳莫如深,然而,由于亚马逊任何举动的影响都将是巨大的,猜测其潜在举动已成为全球金融及空运行业分析师的关注焦点。 是否有最新的传闻?这么说吧,自从亚马逊将其自有的航空公司由亚马逊Prime航空重新命名为亚马逊航空以来,传闻就一定会发生。就在上周,根据欧洲和北美媒体的报道,亚马逊计划在已向航空运输服务集团和阿特拉斯航空集团订购四十七架货机的基础上,再订购更多的货机。《空运通讯》认为,该项传闻目前还没有经过充分的论证。 那么,亚马逊会订购更多的货机吗?《空运通讯》相信如此,但不知道什么时候,什么类型,或者多少。是更多的波音767-300改造货机?是全新的波音767-300货机?还是波音737改造货机或空客321改造货机?已经听到了太多的传闻,然而直到现在,还是不知道亚马逊的机队计划到底是什么。 截至2017年底,亚马逊航空的机队共有三十二架波音767货机。其中,十二架波音767-200BDSF以及八架波音767-300BDSF由航空运输服务集团下属的航空公司运营,另外十二架波音767-300BCF及767-300BDSF则由阿特拉斯航空运营。至2018年底,阿特拉斯航空集团还将提供八架波音767-300改造货机(其中几架飞机已开始货机改造)。届时,亚马逊航空将拥有四十架宽体货机,其中,许多航空运力将会被投放于辛辛那提北肯塔基机场(CVG),该机场作为亚马逊航空的新货运枢纽正在进行改造,未来预计能够容纳一百架飞机。据此,请得出你自己的结论。
