Merchant Express Aviation
was a short lived cargo airline
flying out of Lagos
Merchant Express Aviation used only one aircraft, a Boeing 707
that flew regularly from Africa
cities, such as Ostend
. The aircraft's registration was 5N-MXX
Merchant Express Aviation flew around the 1990s. Just like many other cargo airlines from around the world, the company gave the venerable 707 jet another chance to fly for a company (other cargo airlines use the DC-8
also). Competition from such European cargo airlines like Cargo Lion
, combined with the poor economical situation of Nigeria
during the time (which also had to do with Nigeria Airways
' demise) to precipitate the cargo airline company's demise before the 2000s had arrived.
From Lagos to many European cities.
