The recovery plan arranged for the repayment of CAMAIR-CO’s debt estimated at CFA35 billion approximatively, the injection of CFA60 billion by the government, the company’s majority shareholder, the extension of the network to 23 destinations, mainly domestic at first then regional and international. It also plans for the addition of new aircrafts to consolidate its fleet which will pass from 5 aircrafts to 12, the installation of a new maintenance platform and the start of air freight.
