Alliance Ground International (AGI) has expanded its operations at John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK), New York, USA, increasing service offerings to airlines operating in the region.

AGI has moved in to JFK’s Cargo Building 22, adding 11,960 square feet of office space and 82,153 square feet of warehouse space to its existing facilities at the airport.

Operations from the new facility are due to begin in December 2021.

“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 Warren Jones, Vice President Business Development, AGI.

“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 76,000-square-foot off-airport air cargo facility five minutes from Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR), New Jersey, USA, to process import freight.

The handler is also relocating from its existing facilities at EWR to a 24,000-square-foot on-airport facility to handle outbound/export cargo and offer a Dual-Facility solution to customers.

AGI recently expanded its North American operations with the acquisition of Maestro International Cargo, an air cargo handling company, located in Chicago O’Hare International Airport, Illinois, USA.
