The company has had its Prime Air cargo around since 2016 and it has been very helpful for Amazon in many ways. Deliveries all over the world have been made possible and easier for Amazon with its own Prime Air. So now when the Prime Air cargo by Amazon comes to India, we might get much faster deliveries. Also, this is a very important step for Amazon as our country is one of the fastest growing markets in the world and Amazon would leave no chance of covering it as soon as possible.

The Prime Air cargo airline will have two Boeing 737-800s and they will carry Amazon’s packages exclusively. These Boeing aircraft have been getting really famous lately among airlines. Moreover, Amazon tied up with a Bengaluru based cargo airline, QuikJet for setting up Prime Air in India. Also, Amazon plans on increasing the number of Boeing 737-800s to 6 in India by the end of this year. This will make Amazon Prime Air in India way more effective and beneficial for Amazon.
