Amazon started sending out press invites for its next big hardware event. It is scheduled to be held on September 24 at 1 PM ET, according to Tech News.\r\n\r\nAs the Verge reports, the event is said to be invite-only. In other words, it\u00a0 will not broadcast the event to the public. However, we could expect the company to refresh its newsroom with a press release containing all the details of its latest hardware lineup soon after the event.\r\n\r\n<img class="size-full wp-image-151007 aligncenter" src="https:\/\/see.news\/wp-content\/uploads\/2020\/09\/images-10-6.jpeg" alt="" \/>\r\n\r\nOn other hand, the firm added nine planes to its Amazon Air fleet, the most it has added over a three-month span since its inception, according to the report by DePaul University\u2019s Chaddick Institute for Metropolitan Development.\r\n\r\nAmazon Air expanded rapidly during summer 2020, a period otherwise marked by sharp year-over-year declines in air-cargo traffic, the report states.\r\n\r\nIn contrast, CNBC News explained that <a href="https:\/\/see.news\/amazon-competes-fedex-by-new-airplanes\/">Amazon\u2019s<\/a> $1.5 billion air hub in northern Kentucky could help give it an edge. The hub scheduled to open in 2021, is designed to have capacity for 100 Amazon-branded planes and handle an estimated 200 flights per day.\r\n\r\n<img class="size-full wp-image-151009 aligncenter" src="https:\/\/see.news\/wp-content\/uploads\/2020\/09\/images-19-639x375-1.jpeg" alt="" \/>\r\n\r\nThis hub appears to be the lynchpin to its efforts to develop a comprehensive array of domestic delivery services across the United States.\r\n\r\nAlso, it started to in-house its air cargo operations in 2014.T hirteen pilots who fly these planes previously explained that the pressure Amazon puts on its contract airlines undermines safety standards.\r\n\r\nThe average <a href="https:\/\/www.time24.news\/2020\/09\/alexa-amazon-marks-event-for-september-24th.html">Amazon<\/a> Air captain makes about 33% less than the average FedEx and UPS captain for flying the same plane once reaching the maximum years of experience, Business Insider reported.\r\n\r\n<img class="size-full wp-image-151010 aligncenter" src="https:\/\/see.news\/wp-content\/uploads\/2020\/09\/105736155-1550054473156thumb6-1.jpg" alt="" \/>\r\n\r\nDePaul University researchers explained in a last June 2020, policy brief that it\u2019s on track to expand to around 200 planes in next seven to eight years. This would make its air fleet larger than major cargo players like DHL, which has 77 planes, and Korean Air Cargo, which has 104.
