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.

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).

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.
