Amazon stated Tuesday that it purchased 11 jets from WestJet and Delta airlines to spice up its rising delivery network and get orders to shoppers in a faster way.

The corporate mentioned it’s the first time it has bought planes for its delivery network. Over the past couple of years, Amazon has been leasing planes to build its fleet.

“Having a mix of both leased and owned planes in our growing fleet permits us to higher manage our operations,” mentioned Sarah Rhoads, vice president of Amazon Global Air, on its official blog post.

Seattle-based Amazon has been continuously working to deliver most of its packages itself and rely much less on UPS, the U.S. Postal Service, and different carriers.

In addition to its fleet of planes, Amazon has additionally built a number of package-sorting hubs at airports, opened warehouses nearer to the place shoppers live, and launched a program that lets contractors start companies and businesses delivering packages in vans stamped with the Amazon logo.

Amazon mentioned the 11 planes, all of which are Boeing 767-300s will be converted to carry cargo instead of passengers.

The 4 jets that it's buying from WestJet will be a part of Amazon’s fleet this year, and the seven from Delta will be ready by the subsequent year. The purchases will bring its whole fleet to 85 planes by 2022.

Amazon declined to tell about how much it's paying for the jets.
