Amazon Prime Planes

Amazon planes just got a new coat of paint. If you’re not aware, Amazon has leased 20 cargo planes, back in March 2016, from a Wilmington, Ohio company called Air Transport Services Group. In addition to its own fleet, Amazon relies on UPS, Fedex and USPS for the delivery of the products it sells online. The new paint have the words “Prime Air” emblazoned on them. This is in addition to a fleet of drones Amazon plans to use in metropolitan areas.
