Wiggins Airways is an American cargo airline based at Manchester, New Hampshire and operating from Manchester-Boston Regional Airport.


Wiggins Airways was founded in 1929 by E.W. Wiggins, operating out of Manchester, New Hampshire. Wiggins Airways was bought out by its employees in the creation of an Employee Share Ownership Plan in 1985. Wiggins currently employs over 160 people.

In late 2014 Ameriflight reached agreement to acquire Wiggins Airways (48 aircraft and 100 employees), which would result in Ameriflight becoming the largest regional air cargo carrier in the world with 218 aircraft in its fleet.[1][2]


Wiggins Airways currently operates a fleet of 49 aircraft. The majority of these aircraft operate as feeders for UPS Airlines and FedEx Express.

As of July 2015, the Wiggins Airways fleet includes:[3][4]
