History

The airline was established in 1980 when Airborne Freight acquired Midwest Air Charter. It started operations on 17 April 1980. Airborne Express, as the airline was initially named, was a wholly-owned subsidiary of Airborne Freight of Seattle[1]. ABX became a public company on 16 August 2003 as part of the merger of DHL and Airborne, in which DHL kept Airborne's ground operations and spun off its air operations as ABX. It employs 10,000 staff (at September 2005). ABX Air's common shares are traded on the NASDAQ National Market under the ticker symbol ABXA. In early 2007, ABX Air announced that it is in negotiations with All Nippon Airways to establish an ACMI agreement with All Nippon to begin flying freight within Asia. The contract would initially utilize 2 Boeing 767-200SF aircraft, and would be open-ended to grow from there.[citation needed] The airline has 7,600 employees (at March 2007)[1].
