Air freight transportation
is a small but economically important component of the Maine freight
transportation system. Air freight transportation is important for
the transportation of perishable commodities (such as seafood) and
time sensitive goods, including semiconductors and overnight packages.
The onset of e-commerce activity has led to growth in small package
delivery shipped via air freight of at least 10% a year. This pattern
is anticipated to grow substantially in the coming decade. Air freight
in Maine moves primarily through the Portland International Jetport
and the Bangor International Airport. The Auburn and Waterville
airports have been designated as regional economic development airports
along with twelve other airports around the State that have the
opportunity to serve as air freight hubs.
