Amazon’s Prime Air is amping up its air services. It’s hiring at least 43 more staffers for its aviation unit as the e-commerce giant boosts its air division, which includes drone delivery development.

Amazon (Nasdaq: AMZN) needs the managers to ensure that its partners, including Atlas Air Holdings (Nasdaq: AAWW) and Air Transport Services Group (Nasdaq: ATSG), comply with all Federal Administration Administration regulations and industry best practices.
