AmeriJet announces a new West Coast cargo hub at Reno, Nevada

AmeriJet International, Inc. (Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood and Miami) has announced its U.S. growth plan, including agreements with the Rickenbacker and Reno airports for the development of two domestic air cargo hubs in Ohio and Nevada.

On July 7, AmeriJet will begin daily operations between its new hubs providing long-haul air freight service connecting eleven cities coast to coast for intercontinental and domestic freight.

Amerijet’ s Pamela Rollins, Sr. V.P. Business Development said, “Amerijet’ s dedicated B767 wide body cargo planes will operate exclusively between these hubs and will provide our customers with additional options for expedited and heavyweight domestic freight. We believe this product fills the need for select services once the mainstay of companies such as Burlington Air Express, Kitty Hawk, Emery and other all cargo carriers who did not survive the economic turmoil of the last decade. Our new freighter service is ideal for shipments moving on long-haul lanes over 1,500 miles, especially those in need of time-critical and high-value, temperature controlled or hazardous material shipments.”

“This exciting new coast-to-coast freight service will benefit both businesses and consumers that count on efficient and cost-effective supply chain solutions,” said Elaine Roberts, President & CEO of the Columbus Regional Airport Authority, which operates Rickenbacker International Airport. “Rickenbacker is well-equipped and perfectly positioned to meet Amerijet’s needs as a key hub for this service and we look forward to building a strong, successful partnership with them.”

“Amerijet’s selection of Reno-Tahoe International for its west coast operation is amazing news for our airport and our community,” Marily Mora, President/CEO of Reno-Tahoe International Airport, said. “Their unique, cost-effective business model, that will blend air cargo with trucking, is a perfect fit for our growing list of distribution centers. We are proud to welcome Amerijet, and their CEO Dave Bassett, to our community.”

Rollins further added “This service connects Seattle/Tacoma, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Phoenix and Reno on the west coast with Columbus, Chicago (O’Hare), Detroit, Philadelphia, Newark and Atlanta on the east coast with 1-2 day service. Our customers are going to benefit from late local cut-off times, typically between 7-9pm and early recovery times, including Saturdays. This new network will also connect to our Miami Hub providing our customers with a faster and cost effective way to seamlessly move their freight between our domestic and international routes.”
