Alliance Ground International (AGI) has moved into a new cargo building at John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) to increase its service offering to airlines operating in the region.

The ground handling company moved into JFK’s Cargo Building 22, adding 11,960sq ft of office space and 82,153sq ft of warehouse space to its existing facilities at the airport.

The move is expected to create more than 200 jobs.

“This facility will allow AGI to expand JFK operations to our existing client base, as well as enabling us to support new airline customers looking to develop services into the New York region,” said AGI’s vice president of business development Warren Jones.

“We expect this operation to create over 200 new full and part-time jobs and we are excited that AGI is able to be a part of New York’s regional economic growth.”

Last month AGI opened a new 76,000sq ft off-airport air cargo facility near Newark Liberty International Airport, New Jersey, USA, to import freight.

The company is also relocating from its existing facilities at Newark Liberty to a 24,000sq ft on-airport facility to handle outbound/ export cargo and offer a ‘Dual-Facility’ solution to customers.
