Thomsonfly (TUI) bought Coventry airport (its main base) but has since sold it.

EUJet was owned by Planestation who also owned Kent Manston Airport (its main base.) Planestation went bust signalling the end to both the airport and the airline.

ELP was actually built by AA...which is a good thing. The old municipal airport (now the site of a cement plant/gravel quarry) was much too close to the mountains! It was handed over to the city of El Paso when they decided to make ELP the main airport.


Celebrating the birth of KELPkidJR on August 5, 2009 :-)

Single airport, single airline operator. Yes.

Single airport, multi airline operator. No. It creates a competitive advantage for one carrier over another and is prohibited.

I think I remember that Ansett owned Hamilton Island airport.

And even though it doesn't quite meet the criteria, I think Air Macau and Macau Airport have the same owner

I think Hawaiian Airlines used to own the West Maui Airport on Maui, they used to fly their turboprops in this airport until the mid 90's.

The East Line group, who is currently running Domodedovo, used to run the East Line airline as well. They sold the airline a while ago to avoid any conflict of interests. The airline has since been rebranded Russian Sky or something like that).

Doesn't MEM has an interesting relationship between them and UPS or NW?
I think this kind of relationship happens more often on Ports and Shipping Lines than on Airports and Airlines.



I don't work for COPA Airlines!

ABX Air doesn't own the airpark at Wilmington, Ohio; but they are the operator. The airport is owned by Clinton County; it used to be known as Clinton County Air Force Base and it was the location where the AC-47 Spooky gunship was developed.

Actually the DHL Airpark as it is now named is owned by DHL Worldwide. This happened when Airborne Express was purchased by DHL in 2003 and ABX Air was spun of into a seperate publicly held company. ABX Air operates the hub for DHL under a hub services agreement, and flies for DHL under an ACMI agreement.
