The Cameroon Airlines Corporation (Camair-Co) has announced a 20% cut for flights from and to the three northern regions of the country. The new marketing strategy that will be implemented as from 1st June 2017, targets Maroua, Garoua and Ngaoundere.
The announcement was made during a meeting in Ngaoundere on May 22nd 2017. Cameroon-Info.Net reports that the meeting brought together Camair-Co’s management, partners and customers.
Ernest Dikoum, general management of Camair-Co, explains that a to-and-fro journey between Yaounde and Ngaoundere could cost FCFA 68, 840.
According to the management of the airline, more than 80 weekly flights are regularly being carried out between some six regional capitals, including Yaounde, Douala , Bafoussam, Ngaoundere and Garoua.
Going by what Camair-Co says, there are four flights to and from Yaounde and Daouala everyday; ten fights every week from Douala and Yaounde to the three northern regions of the nation.
The lone airline operator in Cameroon currently operates five aircraft.
Unfortunately, the two Anglophone regions of the country do not feature on the airline’s table.
According to the company’s website, their flights target five national destinations, seven Central and West African nations and one destination out of the continent, France.
Camair-Co is seducing passengers at a time when the transport climate in Cameroon is going through serious trials. Camrail, railway transport operator in the country, is yet to recover from the shock of the so-called report of PM Yang’s Inquiry Commission on the Eseka train derailment that claimed several lives and left hundreds of persons severely injured in 2016.
