After several years of troubled operations, Midex Airlines ended operations as of June. The Sharjah-based carrier in the United Arab Emirates, was a wholly owned subsidiary of Midex International Group, a Lebanon-based courier firm, with its main hub at Paris Orly in France. At its height, Midex specialized in ad-hoc cargo flights employing a fleet of six A300Fs and three 747-200Fs for flights throughout the Persian Gulf, Asia, Europe, and the CIS.
Launching in 2008, at the start of the global economic crisis, Midex never quite got its feet on the ground. It later faced stiff competition from belly carriers and it also lacked the expertise from experienced airline professionals.
