Amazon to take air with 20 Boeing cargo planes
NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- Amazon has gotten a lot of attention with its plans to deliver packages by drone, but it'll be taking to the air in a much bigger way before that. It signed a deal to lease 20 Boeing 767 cargo planes. The deal between Amazon and air cargo operator Air Transport Services Group will last between five and seven years. Each of the Boeing jets is capable of carrying about 88 tons of freight across country.
