Amazon adds more jets to its growing fleet

Amazon is adding more jets to its fleet, as it grows its own delivery business and relies less on UPS, the post office and other carriers

NEW YORK -- Amazon's fleet of jets is getting bigger.

Amazon said it currently has 42 planes in its fleet and will have 70 by 2021.

Amazon said its fleet of planes flies within the U.S.
