Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O) said on Wednesday it leased 12 Boeing 767-300 converted cargo aircraft from Air Transport Services Group Inc (ATSG.O), bringing its total fleet to more than 80, as it pushes for faster delivery to meet a surge in online orders.

One of the new aircraft joined the online retailer’s operations in May while the remaining 11 will be delivered in 2021, the company said in a statement.

Amazon is also opening regional hubs to support its growing air network. This summer it will open new regional air hubs at Lakeland Linder International Airport in Florida.
